More people die from radon-related lung cancer each year than from gunshots.</p><p> Mon, 01 Aug 2011 14:49:00 +0000 Gina Clear, The News-Enterprise 9689 at http://weku.fm Radon: Ignorance Kills Relief Workers Return from Alabama http://weku.fm/post/relief-workers-return-alabama <p><a href="http://www.thenewsenterprise.com/content/local-mission-group-returns-tornado-devasted-alabama">After a recent trip to</a> tornado-stricken Alabama to deliver supplies, a Hardin County mission group is planning to return. The group from New Horizon Baptist Church in Glendale took a tractor trailer full of food, housewares, bed linens, water and a variety of other needed supplies to Webster&rsquo;s Chapel, Ala., and saw first hand the devastation the recent outbreak of tornadoes had on the area. The group will return to the area because of how many people are still without homes. Tue, 21 Jun 2011 15:50:59 +0000 Gina Clear, The News-Enterprise 7051 at http://weku.fm
