Smoking is NOT the only cause of lung cancer
Breathing in Radon gas is the number one cause of lung cancer in people who do not smoke.
Each year over 22,000 people die from radon-induced lung cancer.
You could be at risk if radon levels in your home or workplace are high. Learning about radon risk and testing your home for radon is the best way to protect yourself and your family.
The Community Health Council of Rutherford County wants to make sure you are informed and prepared to protect your family from Radon gas.
