Philadelphia Radon Concerns and Lung Cancer
Many people in the United States already know that radon gas is dangerous, but Philadelphia residents may not be fully aware to the extent in which radon gas may be harm your health. When it comes to lung cancer, we often quickly make associations with cigarettes and tobacco. Unfortunately, the possibility of lung cancer is not limited to smokers and tobacco users. In fact, lung cancer is not limited to simple secondhand smoke inhalers either.
