Radon is a radioactive gas that can enter your home. Radon causes around 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the country, and nearly 1,000 of those are in Wisconsin.
Fortunately, this cause of lung cancer is preventable! The only way to know the level of radon in your home is to test it. Testing during the heating season is the time to get the best result.
Call Oconto County Public Health at 920-834-7000 to buy a radon test kit.
