    It is estimated that a reduction of radon levels to below 2 pCi/L nationwide would likely reduce the yearly lung cancer deaths attributed to radon by 50%. However, even with an action level of pCi/L, the cancer risk presented by radon gas is still hundreds of times greater than the risks allowed for carcinogens in our food and water. The radon outreach and education programs of EPA, state and local government agencies, and private organizations have helped to increase greatly public awareness of this environmental health hazard. In the residential context, this work has focused almost exclusively on promoting radon testing and mitigation in single family, owner-occupied.

    Measurement of high concentrations of radon in homes led environmental health agencies to focus on radon as a health hazard and has resulted in concern from scientists, the medical profession and the general public. It is in this context that the author undertook the writing of this book.   CDC’s Radon Communication Toolkit is designed for environmental and public health professionals to use to increase awareness and understanding of radon, its health effects, and the importance of testing for radon among the communities they serve. The toolkit contains customizable fact sheets, infographics, newsletter articles, and social media posts.

    C - Presenting Radon Programs (CERTI) CERTI’s new course Presenting Radon Programs is designed to assist individuals in delivering radon programs to a host of audiences from Real Estate professionals to builders and ultimately to the consumer. A book that answers homeowners’ typical questions and walks them through the process of reducing the nation’s number one indoor health hazard, RADON. Available .

Book Environmental Test and Radon Test. We have been providing enviromantal and radon testing in the Chicagoland and Southern Wisconsin. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that radon causes ab lung cancer deaths in the United States each year.

While other estimates might be higher or lower, there is general agreement that radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer after active smoking and the leading cause among non-smokers.

A known human carcinogen, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Pennsylvania has one of the most serious radon problems in the United States. Approximately 40 percent of Pennsylvania homes have radon levels above Environmental Protection Agency's action guideline of 4 picocuries per liter.
