November is Radon Awareness Month and there are a couple of grim facts that should have Westman residents sitting up and taking notice.
Firstly, radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer.
Secondly, up to 45 per cent of people in southwest Manitoba live in homes exceeding the national recommended guideline for radon in indoor air.
That’s why the Canadian Cancer Society is sponsoring free information sessions today through Thursday at the Home Hardware Building Centre at 1020 18th St.
They start at 2 p.m. daily.
