January is Kansas Radon Action Month
Kansas Ag Connection - 01/03/2018

Governor Sam Brownback signed a proclamation declaring January to be Kansas Radon Action Month. Radon is a naturally occurring colorless, odorless, radioactive gas which comes from the soil and can be found everywhere. One-in-four homes in Kansas are effect by radon as elevated radon levels have been detected in every Kansas county.

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer overall. The only way to know if you are being exposed to elevated radon levels is to test your home. The Kansas Radon Program is currently involved in partnerships with Kansas State University, the Kansas Cancer Partnership, and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's Environmental Public Health Tracking program to educate Kansas citizens about the dangerous health effects from radon and how to protect themselves.
