Even though February is Heart Month, the physicians and staff at Care in the Creek Medical Centre would like to inform you of another very important issue that everyone should know about – RADON.
Radon is an odorless naturally occurring gas resulting from the breakdown of uranium and emitted from the ground into your household. Alberta is one of the provinces with the highest levels of this harmful agent. And did you know that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer?
There are inexpensive kits available for purchase from the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada to test if your home is at risk. There are also many resources available for more information.
Come and talk with your physician at Care in the Creek in Bragg Creek about this important issue. If you do not have a family physician call today to book your meet and greet appointment.
