Radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer nation-wide, causing about 21,000 deaths per year in the U.S. and about 500 deaths per year in Wisconsin. Radon has no smell, taste, or color. While you can’t see or smell it, you can protect yourself from radon. It can be easily measured with a simple and inexpensive test that homeowners can do themselves.
