The American Lung Association of Western Massachusetts and the EPA
are encouraging Western Massachusetts residents to test their homes
for Radon Gas.
The EPA says Radon is one of the most serious health hazards in our community but few problems with the gas are ever heard about.
Radon gas is odorless, colorless, and completely invisible and is the
leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.
Where does it come from? Health officials say it comes from within the earth itself and the only way to find out if Radon Gas is in your home is with a test kit available at the American Lung Association of Western
Mass for $8.
