Radon Action Month Urges Awareness Submitted: 01/04/2013
RHINELANDER - Every year around this time we hear about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, but something else out there killed more people last year.

The Environmental Protection Agency wants you to know the dangers of Radon.

The leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers in the U.S. is exposure to Radon. It's natural, invisible and odorless.

The EPA and Surgeon General say if you haven't had your home tested in the last two years you should take action.

Radon exposure isn't very common in the Northwoods, but it does still happen. Local experts say you should still have your home tested every two years because you would never be able to tell if there was Radon in your house.
