As you can guess from the title, I am nerd. I blame it on my family and genetics. But, to me a nerd is a good thing and I love it haha! My mom is a super smart Chemistry teacher, so she gets me interested in sciency things. I am working on a research paper for one of my classes about radon exposure. Many people have not heard of radon, let alone how to test their homes for radon. We moved last fall, and I learned quite a bit about radon. We installed a radon mitigation system (pretty much a fancy name for a big fan) to get rid of the radon in our house. Then before we moved into our new house, we had the house test for radon. It too had to have a radon mitigation system installed.
Here are some facts about radon:
- Radon is a odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas found naturally in the soil.
- Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer.
- Radon can be tested for and fixed.
- Radon levels 4 pCi/L or above should be fixed.
- The Surgeon General recommends everyone test their homes for Radon.
Because I love everything WordPress related and my brother works for Automattic, I had to try Polldaddy. I made my first Polldaddy survey, yippee!
If you feel it in the goodness of your heart to take my survey, I would greatly appreciate it! My grade greatly appreciates it as well I am excited to learn more about radon awareness and hopefully educate others on radon. Who knew a person could get fired up about radon. Just ask my classmates, I am a freak about radon. I just want to help others and protect them from the harmful effects! I am always preaching to others about getting their homes tested for radon. By taking this survey, you are helping me learn how I can better help others. Thanks in advance!!
