How can you TAKE ACTION?
Start by learning about radon and how reducing radon exposure will prevent future lung cancer. The next step is easy. Test your home for radon. You can find you can find radon tests online and if your results come back high, radon can be reduced.
You can TAKE ACTION by asking if your workplace, school or public spaces have been tested for radon.
This year’s Campaign is titled “Today4Tomorrow”. #Today4Tomorrow
We make decisions everyday to plan for tomorrow. We eat healthy foods, exercise regularly or plan financially for our future. Taking Action on Radon is another important step in looking after ourselves and our family today to protect our tomorrows. Test your home #Today4Tomorrow.
Unlike other household dangers like carbon monoxide, radon doesn’t affect our health right away. Due to the long latency period of lung cancer, the health effects from long-term exposure to high radon levels are only likely to be felt years down the road.
Why is Latency important?
That time delay doesn’t make testing for radon any less important. After all, think of all the other ways we invest in our future: whether it’s making healthy decisions every day, healthy eating choices; being active; retirement savings, education plans; even a daily multi-vitamin is only effective when taken long-term. No matter what our plans for the future might include, they’re nothing without the health to enjoy them.
So this November, we encourage you to Take Action Today4Tomorrow.
Join us in raising awareness on Take Action on Radon and the #Today4Tomorrow campaign.
