Don't Smoke and Don't breathe smokeless Radon in your own home

Residents of Bethany Beach and southern Delaware should know why Health Department does not encourage you to test your homes for radon gas. Radon(a radioactive gas) is an indoor air pollutant and the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths. Replenshing beaches would also mean more development. Know how to sustain and maintain good health in light of current political options and the game of Delaware's Health Agency. If you are a smoker and your home has high radon levels inside and around your home (due to high radon sand), you should take preventive measures.

Educate yourself by visiting EPA/radon website rather than waiting for your health department to downplay radon threat in your area. Know your air and water before you settle to move in that new home or renovate an old home in Delaware. Radon tests in southern Delaware have not been encouraged by Delaware Division of Public Health. However, low radon levels in Kent and Sussex county, currently shown are due to lack of aggregate testing rather than purely a geological evidence. Unless you test for radon gas, you cannot say you are not exposed to radon gas. Best thing is to find out. Go to nearest hardware store to buy your radon test kit and visit EPA website for complete information on radon and other indoor air health hazards.

Public Service Annoucement: Breathe Radon Free and Make Your Lungs As Your Business.
