Radon is a silent killer

Date Published: 01/13/2009 [Source]

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in the US.

Most patients diagnosed with radon-related lung cancer do not live long because it is usually not diagnosed in the early stages.

In an effort to raise awareness about the risks of radon and to promote legislation requiring mandatory testing and radon-resistant construction methods, CanSAR (Cancer Survivors Against Radon) is going to Washington, D.C., at the end of January.
