I knew someone who never smoked and was very health concsious who died of lung cancer. She did everything right and yet succumbed to it anyway. Could this have been a case of radon caused lung cancer? It is only a guess, but it is a surity that testing for radon is worthwhile and not that expensive.
"Radon, concentrated in poorly ventilated basements, might not be a concern for the few minutes that one is doing laundry or other chores, but it becomes a cancer risk after eight-hour days in a basement office. Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer, claiming 21,000 lives each year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency."

Many homes with cellers and basements may be subject to radon gas emissions and you would never suspect. It is estimated that some 20,000 people may die every year of radon related illness, especially lung cancer. Better safe than sorry.

Lung cancer kills thousands of Americans every year.

Smoking, radon, and secondhand smoke are the leading causes of lung cancer. Although lung cancer can be treated, the survival rate is one of the lowest for those with cancer. From the time of diagnosis, between 11 and 15 percent of those afflicted will live beyond five years, depending upon demographic factors. In many cases lung cancer can be prevented; this is especially true for radon.
