Protect your family from radon, the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers

rps-logosmallDid you know that even a brand new home could present a risk of lung cancer for your family? Radon gas rises up from underground and can enter any home, old or new.

Breathing radon can damage lungs. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Only testing your home can confirm whether this danger is present in your home. New homes can be built to resist radon. Radon Resistant New Construction is an affordable and simple measure to include in your home plans.

For more information about testing, mitigating or building a radon resistant home visit www.ncradon.org.
