Protect your Family – Test your home for radon. – You can Prevent Lung cancer!

Radon is naturally produced from the decay of elements found in the soil beneath our homes. Homes on Leech Lake Reservation range from low to high. Radon is responsible for an estimated 21,000 deaths from lung cancer each year. Even though we cannot see radon or smell it – Radon is real! It is an Invisible, odorless radioactive gas that’s bad for our lungs.

In the US radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. Radon can build up to high levels in our homes and become a problem for the people who live there. Your home might have high levels of radon and you wouldn’t even know it. No matter what type of home you live in: brand new and airtight or old and drafty radon isn’t picky. To date we have assisted over 390 Leech Lakers in making their homes safer by reducing their radon. Join us in reducing radon across the Reservation. Harm to our lungs can be prevented, we just have to test!
