Scary stuff. Contact InterMax to do that radon test for you 506-369-9090!You wouldn't let your children smoke, so why are you exposing them to radon?
Radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer, following smoking. It is a natural gas that comes from the ground; resulting from the break down of uranium in the earth. It is colorless, odorless and tasteless. Not only is it in the air, but it may also be in your water. The only way you will know if you are being exposed to radon is to conduct a test.
The EPA recommends an "action level" of 4 pCi/L; however, this is still equivalent to smoking about 8 cigarettes per day. No level of radon exposure is considered safe.
It would be considered neglect if you allowed your children to smoke, but why isn't it neglect if you expose your children to radon? They both cause lung cancer.
