Why Test for Radon?
- Radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and is associated with 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths each year.
- Cracks inside the walls and floors of your home can allow radioactive radon gas to creep inside and affect your air quality and health.
- In the United States, an estimated 21,000 people die from radon-related lung cancer every year (compared with 160,000 lung cancer deaths from smoking), according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
- Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer, and it’s the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, adds the EPA. And people who smoke or used to smoke or who use home heating fuels that add particles to indoor air have an even greater chance of developing lung cancer if they are exposed to radon.
- Radon is a common problem in homes throughout the country — as many as one in 15 U.S. homes has high levels of radon, according to the EPA.
- There is an elevated risk of radon exposure in all of Western North Carolina and an even higher risk in Buncombe County, Henderson County and Transylvania County and Cherokee Counties. This includes the highly populated areas of Asheville and Hendersonville.
- Testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels. There are no immediate symptoms that will alert you to the presence of radon. It typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface. The US EPA, Surgeon General, American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and National Safety Council recommend testing your home for radon because testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels.
