Radon Deaths Per Year
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. On January 13, 2005, Dr. Richard H. Carmona, the U.S. Surgeon General, issued a national health advisory on radon.
Test your home for radon — it’s easy and inexpensive.
Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced.
Fix your home if your radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher. Radon is estimated tocause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.
Governor John Hickenlooper's Proclamation

January only, if you test your home for radon and the levels are above the EPA standards of 4.0 pCi/L, Axium Radon Mitigations will give you a $150 credit towards your radon mitigation system.
