The Surgeon General's Office is warning people to protect their homes and families from Radon.
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, second to smoking. Radon is an odorless, tasteless, invisible gas that's naturally occurring outdoors, but if it gets trapped inside it can reach harmful levels.
There are 20,000 estimated deaths every year from unknown Radon exposure. Radon test kits can be purchased at the Mesa County Health Department for $6. This fee includes analysis and shipping.
