Take action: Test your home for radon

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated January as National Radon Action Month. Radon is a radioactive gas that is invisible, tasteless, and odorless, and it can be harmful to you. In fact, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. For more information about radon and how to test your home for radon exposure, visit the Cooperative Extension Services’ Radon Education webpage.
