Green Tip: Check for radon

Date Published: 01/19/2009 [Source]

A Lake Oswego resident's husband urges others to test for radon after her husband, a nonsmoker, died from lung cancer that spread to his lymph nodes and bones. Their home tested at 57.2 pCi/L, well over the EPA recommended action level of 4 pCi/L.

Test kits are available at most home improvement stores, as well as the Oregon Radon Protection Services office.
