Iowa Cancer Summit to Emphasize Radon Risks

Monday, October 3rd, 2011 by Curt Drew


Dubuque – When cancer experts gather in Des Moines next week to talk cancer, much of the talk will be focused on radon – the second leading cause of lung cancer. In fact, Iowa’s Cancer Consortium is rewriting their five-year Iowa Cancer Plan to emphasize the dangers of radon.

Advanced Radon Mitigators has been warning homeowners in Iowa of the risks of radon for several years. The colorless, odorless gas can seep up through the cracks and holes in the foundation of the home, exposing those living there to radiation and causing lung cancer.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says radon kills more than 21,000 people each year.

One of the Iowa Cancer Consortium’s goals is to prevent cancer from occurring. This shift to focusing on radon as a cause of lung cancer is ideal since radon is easily detected and easily treated. A radon detection kit can determine if your home or business has high levels of radiation. The EPA considers 4 picocuries per liter of air to be a dangerous level. If the radon detection kit finds 4 picocuries or more, a radon mitigation system can be inexpensively installed to vent the gas and eliminate the risk of radiation.
Advanced Radon Mitigators’ Bret Patterson is thrilled Iowa is taking such a strong stance against this cancer causer.

“Iowa’s Cancer Consortium has it right.” Patterson said. “This focus on radon will save the lives of hundreds of Iowans.”

Advanced Radon Mitigators is the industry leading provider of radon testing and mitigation services. They service the greater Dubuque, IA area.  Their experts know how to test for elevated radon levels in the home and install an affordable and aesthetically-pleasing mitigation system.
