    National Radon Action Month with Bill Long

    in Health

    Doctors of the USA welcomes Bill Long, Director, Center for Radon and Air Toxics, to talk about how to protect yourself and your family from radon. Listen in as he shares the dangers of radon and how you can protect your family’s health by testing your home for radon gas in 2015.


    Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, estimated to cause about 21,000 deaths per year. It can be found all over the U.S. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes. Radon reduction systems work and they are not too costly. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. For new homes, radon-resistant construction techniques can be effective in preventing radon entry. When installed properly and completely, these simple and inexpensive techniques can help reduce indoor radon levels in homes.


    Bill Long is the Director of the Center for Radon and Air Toxics in EPA’s Indoor Environments Program. He has over 20 years of experience directing national and international environmental programs to improve air quality and save lives at the US EPA.
