Lung Cancer Screening Saves Lives

No One Deserves Lung Cancer.

Today, lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer in America.

In the last 35 years, the lung cancer death rate has fallen 21 percent among men, but has increased 116 percent among women. New studies have shown that low-dose CT screening for high-risk individuals (and meet the USPSTF guidelines) can reduce mortality by 14 percent.

Second Leading Cause of Lung Cancer - Radon

Dangerous Radon levels in homes, schools and other buildings After smoking, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Exposure to radon gas increases your risk of developing lung cancer, and the EPA estimates that 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the United States are due to radon exposure.

Radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that is produced by naturally decaying uranium and radium in the ground. Radon can build up to dangerous levels inside homes, schools and other buildings.

Should your home be tested?

Every home should be tested. Radon has been found at elevated levels in homes in every state. Affordable ($10-$20), do-it-yourself test kits can be purchased through hardware stores, the National Safety Council or some state programs.

If dangerous levels of radon are detected in your home, they can be reduced through a variety of repairs. Find detailed information about how to reduce radon to safe levels in your home or building.
