Radon, a radioactive gas, seeps up from the ground and accumulated in buildings. It is colorless, odorless and tasteless. Radon test kits are the only way to detect it. The kits are simple, inexpensive and available in supermarkets and hardware stores. Exposure to high levels of ra- don causes lung cancer -- 20,000 lung cancer deaths every year in the United States, says John R. Carlson, executive di- rector of the American Lung As- sociation of West Virginia. Now is the time to test homes for radon. With storm windows in place and doors closed, condi- tions are right for an accumula- tion of radon gas. When a home's radon level tests high, the solution is often as easy as sealing cracks in basement floors and walls or in- stalling fans. in West Virginia, anyone with questions about ra- don gas can call the state's ra- don hotline at 1-800-922-1255 for lnibrmation. rhe Mountain Messenger Stands Tall In Southeastern West Virginia For Ad Advertise With Us.
