National Radon Action Month
January 1 – January 31 CST
National Radon Action Month observed in January, is a time to increase awareness of radon. You can’t see it or smell it, but radon could be present at a dangerous level in your home. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among non-smokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year, according to the EPA.
National Radon Action Month is a time to increase awareness of radon, and to spur advocacy on behalf of those suffering with the emotional, financial and physical burden of radon exposure. Exposure to radon is a preventable health risk and testing radon levels in your home can help prevent unnecessary exposure. If a high radon level is detected in your home, you can take steps to fix the problem to protect yourself and your family.#personalizedcause
