About the Cover

Hazards in the home present challenges to our health and safety. We are, however, aware of many of those hazards, such as the ones highlighted on this month’s cover—lead, toxic chemicals, food contamination, and bacteria and viruses that cause sickness. Government regulations, policies, and standards, as well as personal habits and choices, help to reduce our exposure to these hazards. While we understand these hazards, why is public awareness of radon low? This issue’s cover article, “Public Awareness and Perceptions Surrounding Radon Testing,” highlights a lack of public understanding of radon and calls for support to improve radon education, awareness, and testing.
