    There is a great brochure created by the Minnesota Department of Health, "Keeping You Safe from Radon". In Minnesota 2 in 5 homes have high radon. It is estimated that 21,000 people die each year in the United States from lung cancer due to radon exposure. A radon test is the only way to know how much radon is in your home. Radon can be reduced with a mitigation system. Radon is a serious public health concern in Minnesota. The average radon level in Minnesota is more than three times higher than the U.S. radon level.
