Alternatives, IS #03 -- Radon in our Homes
August 22, 2009
August 22, 2009
Cancer is a disease of civilization.
We are destroying our health
Cancer is not, as some people think, “a thunderbolt of fate”, striking at random with no cure or cause. There is a cause-and-effect relationship between the environment we’ve created and the health problems we are experiencing.
RADON: The Health Hazard with a Simple Solution
Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America, and claims about 20,000 lives annually.
We are just beginning to recognize the far reaching effects of radon on our immune system and other body organs.
Find out more about the effects on radon, and the simple test you can use to determine if you have “radon” in your home.

FEATURE ARTICLE At a Glance
The Health Hazard with a Simple Solution
Radon is a cancer-causing, natural, radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, the second leading cause of lung cancer in America, and claims about 21,000 lives annually.
Lung cancer kills thousands of Americans every year. The untimely deaths of Peter Jennings and Dana Reeve have raised public awareness about lung cancer, especially among people who have never smoked.
Smoking, radon, and secondhand smoke are the leading causes of lung cancer. Although lung cancer can be treated, the survival rate is one of the lowest for those with cancer.
From the time of initial cancer diagnosis, between 11 and 15 percent of those afflicted will live beyond five years, depending upon demographic factors. In many cases lung cancer can be prevented; this is especially true for radon.
Radon is a natural, radioactive gas that comes from the earth's soil and rocks.
Specifically, when uranium in the earths crust decays, it produces radium, which in turn produces radon. This odorless and colorless gas naturally percolates through porous soils where it enters the air. Outdoors, radon generally is not much of a problem because it rapidly dissipates. Indoors, however, is another story.
Radon gas can enter your home through:
· Gaps and cracks in your foundation or insulation
· Sumps and drains
· other openings
Radon can even be emitted from some home building materials such as the stone used to build fireplaces, granite countertops or solar heating storage systems.
As Radon enters your home, the gas accumulates in your homes indoor air.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States has radon levels at or above the EPA's recommended safety level.
Radon's Health Risks
Over time, sometimes many years, the breathing in radon gas can damage the lung tissue and lead to lung cancer. This happens because the radioactive radon particles get trapped in your lungs and break down further, releasing bursts of energy that can lead to cancer.
Radon posses such a great threat because it cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted. In other words, there is no way to know, using your five senses, that radon is leaking into your home.
According to the American Cancer Society
Regardless of where you live, it's still recommended that you test the radon levels in your home, as elevated radon levels have been found in almost every state.
Testing your home for Radon is essential and easy. The only way to find out if your home has safe levels of radon is with a radon test. That’s why the EPA and Surgeon General recommend that all homes be tested for radon below the third floor.
Testing is the ONLY way to determine if radon is in your home because it can't be seen, smelled, or tasted.
Testing your home's air for this poisonous gas is easy to do. If you live in Southeastern Wisconsin call Scott at Lifetime Radon Solutions at 1-888-298-2078 to set up an appointment for a FREE test and consultation. Scott is saving lives for generations to come! Or you are invited to contact www.radon.com.

Swine Flu –How to protect yourself and your family
The symptoms of novel H1N1 (Swine) flu virus in people are similar to the symptoms of seasonal flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.
A significant number of people who have been infected with swine flu virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting.
People at higher risk of serious complications from seasonal or swine flu include:
· people age 65 years and older,
· children younger than 5 years old,
· pregnant women, people of any age with chronic medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, cancer, or heart disease), and
· people who are immuno-suppressed (e.g., taking immunosuppressive medications, infected with HIV).
As you look at the symptoms of swine flu, you may note that the symptoms are really due to a weak immune system. Strengthening your immune system with organic fruits and vegetables and taking whole food supplements will be a strong defense against swine flu.

In other words, what we eat should be so good for us that it actually heals and restores our bodies.
What a difference from the average American mind-set about eating!

Is Water Pollution Causing Cancer?
What’s Wrong With Our Drinking Water?
Pure water, allows the blood circulation to cleanse the immune system. Treating cancer alternatively reveals the pollutants and pesticides in water and its effects on cancer.
When the body is well hydrated with pure drinking water, blood circulation is expanded and immune system can reach and cleanse our mutated cancer cells.
Most people would agree it is wise to provide our bodies with the pure water, pure air and pure food. I believe our immune system will operate best in this environment. As we strengthen our immune system, our bodies can fight cancer and other diseases.
