Protect your family against lung cancer by testing your home for radon. It’s important to remember to test your home for radon to protect your family’s health. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and the first leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. The EPA estimates that as many as 21,000 lung cancer deaths a year are caused by radon.
The only way to know the radon level in your home is to test it. The Lincoln County Health Department has received a $2500 radon grant from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
