Radon expert talks about the deadly gas

Burlington, Vermont - December 3, 2010

According to the EPA, radon exposure in the home is responsible for 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year in America. Only smoking causes more lung cancer. 

Radon expert Paul Lyman appeared on The :30 to tell us more about the deadly gas.

From new to drafty old homes and homes with or without basements, homes of all types can have a radon problem. How the home was built can be a factor on radon levels in homes.

Aside from professional testing like Lyman offers and commercially available testing kits, the state also offers a free longer term testing option.

For more info, watch the video from The :30.
