Radon is a silent killer – it is invisible, odorless and tasteless;
the only way to know if radon is present in elevated levels is to test.

Gloria Linnertz, an activist for Citizens for Radioactive Radon Reduction,
will present a program on Radon Awareness May 14, 2014 at 7 p.m.
for Morrison-Talbott Library, 215 Park Street, Waterloo.
To register for this program please contact the library at mtl@waterloolibrary.org or (618) 939-6232.

Most people are unaware of the invisible demon that may be occupying their home, school or work environment.
Linnertz will educate you about radon and give you the information you need to act on protecting your living environment.
Linnertz will also have information on the Southern Illinois Radon Awareness Task Force, Inc. and the Citizens for Radioactive Radon Reduction group. Both of these organizations have websites with up-to-date information on the issue of radon.
Handouts will be available at the program May 14th.
Elevated levels of radon can be present in any type of home, old, new, basement, no basement, crawlspace or slab on grade.
One in 15 houses have elevated radon levels.
Radon gas emits radioactive particles that can be inhaled into the lungs.
Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.
