Harvard conducts study that reveals that radon gas is the number one in-home health hazard. SWAT Environmental provides solutions to radon gas issues.
(1888PressRelease) November 04, 2011 - For many years, scientists and doctors have known that there is a strong link between radon contamination of homes and serious diseases like lung cancer. In fact, radon is widely viewed as the second leading cause of lung cancer, second only to cigarette smoking.
A study from Harvard backs up what so many in the radon detection and mitigation industry already know. That Harvard study revealed that radon is the leading in-home health hazard, killing over 20,000 Americans annually. That means that all homeowners, no matter where they live or what type of home they live in, should have their houses tested for the presence of this colorless, odorless and dangerous radioactive gas.
As the study from Harvard points out, one of the things that makes radon gas such a danger is the fact that it is impossible to detect without specialized testing equipment. The fact that radon gas is invisible means that many homeowners have been living in the midst of this dangerous radioactive gas for years without even knowing it. The researchers at Harvard rightly point out that radon detection is an essential first step for homeowners who want to protect themselves, their homes and their families.
