Slide 2: According to the new study, more research is needed on the link between this dangerous gas and skin cancer. However, the current evidence collected in the study does conclude that skin cancer rates are higher in areas with larger amounts of radon gas inside the homes. It also concludes that testing for radon gas is important to preventing skin cancer. Preventing a severe health problem like skin cancer by simply testing a home for radon gas and taking the steps necessary to mitigate this harmful gas from entering the home is an easy task that no one should ever overlook. Skin cancer is a dangerous disease that can be fatal. With this new information on the link between radon gas and skin cancer, every home should be tested. For more information about radon gas, radon testing options, and how to reduce radon when found in a home, please contact SWAT Environmental at 1-800-667-2366 or visit the SWAT Environmental website at www.RadonSystem.com Source: http://www.1888pressrelease.com/radon-gas-linked-to-skin-cancer-according-to-healthprotecti-pr-354618.html
