COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - The tri-county health department office in Coldwater says something silent and deadly may be lurking in your basement.  Officials say radon is a real danger that could be in your own home and posing a real health threat to you and your family. 

Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water; and it is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.  According to Air Check, more than one of every three homes in the tri-county area has elevated radon above the acceptable level set by the EPA. 

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency offers free radon testing kits and you’re encouraged to stop by the health department and pick one up.  October 20th to 26th is National Radon Awareness Week.
