Bringing health home.

A state government program to make homes safer in Delaware is flooding the radio, billboards and sides of buses with messages on how to reduce the amount of cancer-causing chemicals in homes. The Delaware Healthy Homes campaign encourages citizens to visit www.DelawareHealthyHomes.org to find tips for reducing household toxins. A major target of the campaign is radon, a colorless, odorless and tasteless radioactive gas found in soil, rock and water. The federal government considers it the nation's second-leading cause of lung cancer.
