Radon is the second leading cause of Lung cancer in the United States behind smoking and is the number one cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers. The State of Minnesota has a statewide average that is three times that of the national average. It is estimated that 40% of the homes in Minnesota have readings above the EPA's action level of 4.0 pCi/l. Please visit the Minnesota Department of Health, indoor air quality unit, and the EPA's website for more information on this very important environmental concern. https://www.epa.gov/radon
