12B The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, April 3, 1990 O By Mary Walker The Rainelte Homemakers met at the home of Mary Walker on Green- brier Avenue, March 20. The meet- ing was called to order by vice presi- dent Elms Delinger in the absence of Janet Johnson. Devotions were given by Peg Burns entitled "Little Things That Matter." Ms Burns also introduced guest speaker Joe Pham who talked about radon. The Envi- ronmental Protection Agency dis- covered radon gas from the soil was going into homes all over the nation, and a study was made to see if ra- don causes cancer. They measure the radon by picocures. One pack- age of cigarettes a day is equal to 15 pc (picocures). To measure ra- don in your home use one of two kits. Charcoal cannister tests take 3- 7 days and costs $10-$25. Alpha track detector tests take 2-4 weeks and costs $20-$50. The charcoal cannister can be obtained at the Department of Health in Fairlea, Dr Pham said his house in Rainelle was tested. In the basement it was 7.3 pc and in the bedroom 1.0 pc. A study from the University of Maine showed in the 85 homes tested, basement, 6.4 pc, bathroom, 3.4 pc, living room 3.1 pc, bedroom, 3.0 pc and outdoor air .8 pc. Andrea Gainer stated her home is built on limestone and radon is very active in limestone. This was not known until recently. Her basement was tested at 71.0 pc. Radon comes from ra- dium, uranium lead and potassium. To reduce the radon in your home seal all cracks in the floor, around drains and between walls a.0d floor. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Call John McCutcheon at 645-1525 or write to Robert Anderson, 508 Brooks Hall, Morgantown for more information and be sure to ask for the booklet "A Citizen's Guide to Radon."
