"People wonder how this would get into my home -if you have a cracked foundation and it doesn't really matter if it's an old home or a new home". Would that be something worth putting at the top of your list of New Year's resolutions? In Colorado radon is responsible for almost 500 lung cancer deaths per year. However, unlike tobacco smoke, it is colorless and odorless, and is undetectable without specialized equipment.

While radon comes from the decay in uranium and is found in nearly all soil types, it isn't content to stay put. Radon gas rises out of the soil to be disbursed by surface air movement.

It said while outdoor radon poses a relatively low risk to health, it can enter homes from surrounding soil and become a hazard inside.

Homes with high levels are found in all regions of Wisconsin, including Kewaunee County.

"And so, if we build things right in the first place we have less problems and if we can find some way to offer some financial assistance to people who are trying to mitigate it, it would be very useful". There are neighborhoods in the red level which show high levels of the radioactive gas.

As Radon gas ages, it too decays into other radioactive chemical elements.

Analysis of test data from 2010-2016 found that about 40 percent of Minnesota homes have unsafe levels of radon (4 pCi/L or above). CDPH is offering free test kits to households in California throughout the month of January, or until supplies run out. Of those, Washington, Frederick and Carroll rank as the three counties with the highest average measured levels.

Radon levels in the outdoors are usually harmless; however, radon can build up indoors to risky levels. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that one in 15 homes nationwide has an elevated level of radon (a level at or above the action level). "By testing, you can take immediate action to reduce your home's radon level if necessary and help protect your family's health". The number of homes in Carroll County with reported levels of Radon higher than 4 pCi/L is almost 50 percent.
