Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Yesterday was World Lung Cancer Day, so we need to talk about radon gas: one of the leading causes of lung cancer in non-smokers and smokers alike.

Lung cancer kills thousands of people every year. Smoking, radon, and secondhand smoke are the leading causes of this type of cancer. Although lung cancer can be treated, the survival rate is one of the lowest. In many cases lung cancer can be prevented, more if it’s because of radon. A continuous measurement device, like Bye Radon, could prevent many of these deaths.

Smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer, causing 160,000 cancer deaths only in the U.S. every year (American Cancer Society). We have to add that lung cancer now surpasses breast cancer as the number one cause of death among women. A smoker who is also exposed to radon has a much higher risk.

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and is responsible for about 41,000 lung cancer deaths every year in the U.S. and Europe. Many of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. Let’s increase visibility in this cancer awareness month!
