Got radon?

More than 20 years since radon was deemed common in Monroe, most homes still don't test for cancer-causing gas.

"A homeowner is not going to think about it because they can't sense it," said Paul Houle, a physics professor at East Stroudsburg University and member of the National Radon Safety Board. He estimates that half of all homes in Monroe County have elevated levels of radon.
