January is Radon Action Month. Approximately 21,000 Americans die each year from lung cancer caused by radon exposure. Radon is a silent killer because it is a radioactive gas that forms naturally in the soil that is odorless and colorless and two of every five houses in Minnesota have high radon levels.
Wright County Health & Human Services sells single-use radon test kits for $5. To learn more about radon go to the Minnesota Department of Health website at https://www.health.state.mn.us/communities/environment/air/radon
