Program To Identify Likely Victims Of Radon-Related Lung Cancer; Survivors Commit To Risk Reduction Despite Failed Government Policy

Date Published: 01/21/2009 [Source]

More people today are at risk from exposure to radon than when the EPA's radon program began over twenty years ago.

Some states have passed legislation after victims of radon-related lung cancer have come forward and obtained media attention. However, creating an advocacy group is difficult because the rate of survival is very low.

AARST is now partnering with CanSAR (Cancer Survivors Against Radon) to help lung cancer patients determine if the cause was radon. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with lung cancer, AARST will send you a free radon test.
