August 1st is World Lung Cancer Day

Today is World Lung Cancer Day. Lung Cancer claims more lives worldwide than breast, prostate and colon cancer combined. Radon induced lung cancer is real and preventable. Like most people, Janet thought only people who smoked got lung cancer. But that’s not the case. Watch her story.

Rachael Malmberg was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer at age 31. The former national-level U.S. hockey player had never smoked and had lived a perfectly healthy life. Since her diagnosis, Malmberg has become an advocate for radon testing. Read more about Rachel's story.

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer (after smoking). Health Canada recently increased its estimate of radon induced lung cancer deaths to approximately 16% of all lung cancers or approximately 3,200 Canadians that die annually from radon exposure.

Health Canada's policy is that all Canadian homes should be tested for radon and mitigated if above the action guideline. Interestingly, many people do not choose to mitigate after finding their dwellings have elevated radon levels. Mitigation need not be difficult or costly.

The only way to know how much radon may be present in your indoor air is to test for it. You can order a radon test online to test your home - it’s easy and inexpensive!

Radon Environmental and the BC Lung Association Extend and Expand their Radon Testing Partnership Agreement

June 3, 2019 - Radon Environmental Management Corp (REM) is proud to announce an extension to its Partnership Agreement with the British Columbia Lung Association (BCLA) to provide efficient and accurate short and long term testing options, to determine if your home, school or workplace has potentially hazardous indoor radon levels.

Radon is a colourless, odourless gas that is produced from the natural breakdown of uranium in rocks and soil. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer after smoking and can seep into a building through drains, pipes, and cracks and crevices in the foundation.

"We are delighted to have expanded our Radon Testing Device and Service Agreement with the British Columbia Lung Association, to provide our extended range of Radonova short term (Rapidos) and long term (Radtrak2) alpha track radon detection devices. We supply many local health authorities and public testing initiatives across Canada and our partnership with the BCLA will lead to increased public awareness and radon testing in British Columbia. The Radtrak 2 has the largest range of detection of any alpha trak devices and the Radonova laboratory is the only ISO17025 certified alpha trak testing facility of its kind, so our clients can be confident in the lab analysis and its QA process. One of the features that our clients like the most is RadOnline, Radonova’s online customer portal. Through MyPages, customers can easily input measurement data, retrieve reports, and have an overview on every project, in real-time," said Alan Whitehead, President & CEO of REM.
