January is the time to test your home for radon levels. January is National Radon Action Month and brings awareness to radon. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked!
