Radon regulation A recent survey of Vermont parents of K-12 children found that there is overwhelming support for radon regulation in schools. While only 51% of parents believed that radon affects the lungs and only 39% identified it as a carcinogen, 91% believed their children's schools should act to address elevated radon levels and 87% supported mandated mitigation. The survey results suggest that parents of young children may be strong advocates to encourage legislative action.
