Dana Reeve's tragic death has spurred on startling connection between women and lung cancer especially in non-smokers

Surprisingly, 20 percent of women diagnosed with lung cancer are non-smokers. After tobacco use, an odorless, radioactive gas called "radon" is the second-leading cause of lung cancer.

What is radon, and how can you avoid it? The EPA or Environmental Protection Agency has been warning of this danger for some time and it is time for citizens to take heed. You'll find detailed radon information on HomeRadonTest.com plus maps indicating whether potential radon levels near your home are higher than average.

There are ways of protecting yourself and your family from this danger. You can get radon test kits to test for this odorless invisible gas. If you find a high radon level in your home or business you can combat it with a good radon mitigation system.

I think it's a pretty safe bet that Dana Reeve died from radon induced lung cancer.

I noticed in the article a reference to those EPA Zone Maps. It's important to remember that ALL HOMES need to be regulary tested for radon regaurdless of which zone they are in.

The EPA Zone maps were developed for use by state and local officials.
