Fighting to Breathe: Kyle Hoylman on Radon’s Lung Cancer Threat in Kentucky

In this interview from KET’s Fighting to Breathe initiative, Dr. Wayne Tuckson speaks with Kyle Hoylman, CEO of Protect Environmental. Holyman discusses radon exposure and how it is the second highest cause of lung cancer behind smoking. He gives advice on testing buildings for radon and how to install a radon mitigation system to remove the threat.

Fighting to Breathe is funded, in part, by grants from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky and the Kentucky Medical Association through a grant from the Anthem Foundation.
