Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking. If you smoke and live in a home with high radon levels, you increase your risk of developing lung cancer.
Having your home tested is the only effective way to determine whether you and your family are at risk of high radon exposure. Your VBCDHD has Radon Testing Kits available, contact our Environmental Health staff for more information.
