Do You Have Gas?
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers.
Every day, 57 Americans die from lung cancer caused by Radon gas. Exposure to Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in people who have never smoked. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated January as Radon Action Month to raise awareness about Radon.
La Crosse County Health Department recommends every home be tested. Winter months are a good time for testing, because Radon is likely to be at its highest concentration. Testing for radon is easy and inexpensive. Radon kits are available for $6.00 at the following locations:
La Crosse County Health Department, 300 4th St N, La Crosse
Hazel Brown Leicht Memorial Library, West Salem
Onalaska Public Library, Onalaska
Gundersen Clinic Pharmacies, La Crosse and Onalaska
