A Healthier Home

The publication offers information and action steps designed to assist individuals living and working in the southern Appalachians in western North Carolina and surrounding areas

(ASHEVILLE, N.C.) — NEWS: Rick Bayless, owner and founder of A Healthier Home, LLC, today offers a new e-book, “Radon Health Risks: What You Need to Know When Living or Working in the Southern Appalachians.”

“Radon Health Risk: What You Need to Know When Living or Working in the Southern Appalachians,” is a 27-page e-book chock full of solid information and insights that readers can put to use right now, without any special training or prior knowledge.

“A swath of uranium rich soil runs underneath the entire area,” says Bayless. “When radon gasses rise upward through the soil and into area homes, it constitutes a significant health risk.”

Radon is currently the second leading cause of cancer in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society and Environmental Protection Agency.

The risk from radon is underscored by the fact that radon is odorless, colorless and tasteless, says Bayless. However, testing is relatively inexpensive.

Readers will quickly learn:

* What radon is, what it does, and how it affects healthiness
* The risk factors for radon in WNC and southern Appalachians
* Signs that a home may have a radon problem
* Costs and decisions associated with radon testing
* What to do if radon is detected in a home
* Expectations for the radon mitigation process
* The dynamics of radon through charts and images
* And more!

“After reading this book, homeowners will be able to assess the likelihood of a radon issue in their home, to perform basic maintenance that protects their family’s health, and make decisions about adequate testing and mitigation,” says Bayless.

He emphasizes that his approach to environmental home healthiness is practical. Bayless, like his book, balances good old-fashioned common sense with accessible scientific principles.

“We’re all in this radon situation together,” he says.
