Radon Detection Kit

Besides cigarettes, radon is the top cause of lung cancer in the US, and exposure in the home is responsible for an estimated 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year. Though certain areas are more prone to radon exposure, every home should get checked. Both Lowe's and Walmart carry at-home kits, and there are state radon contacts that can also help you with radon detection.
