Comments on: Resolve to Protect Your Family and Kick Radon Out of Your Home in 2009 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/01/resolve-to-protect-your-family-and-kick-radon-out-of-your-home-in-2009/ The EPA Blog Mon, 14 Dec 2015 16:24:21 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Ken http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/01/resolve-to-protect-your-family-and-kick-radon-out-of-your-home-in-2009/#comment-11752 Thu, 31 Mar 2011 21:30:04 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=609#comment-11752 I am currently writing a research paper on radon and its risks. A few important things I’ve learned so far:

– If you smoke and are exposed to high levels of radon your risk of lung cancer increases by up to 20 times.
-Radon gas can also come from the granite counter tops and floors in your home.
-In New Jersey 84% of the homes mitigated had radon levels reduced to 2pCi/L or less.
-Approximately 6 million people live in moderate to high areas and 2.4 million homes still need to be tested in these areas.

TEST, FIX, SAVE A LIFE.

I thought radon is helpful for my family and its safe because it also used by scientist and doctors for treating sickness. I appreciate this article so much! Thank you for the info.

Thanks a lot for this article! It came so timely since we’re planning to get a new home and this matter should be put into consideration.

We must stop this.

“110TH CONGRESS – 1ST SESSION H. R. 1363
To amend the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 to improve the nutrition and health of schoolchildren by updating the definition of ‘‘food of minimal nutritional value’’ to conform to current nutrition science and to protect the Federal investment in the national school lunch and breakfast programs”. There is NO mention of radon gas.
