The video is only 61 seconds long but its message is a powerful one. Union High School freshman Austin Timmer has produced a short video about the dangers of radon, a radioactive, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer (behind cigarette smoking), according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Timmer submitted the video as a contest entry where the winner will be determined by the greatest number of views it receives on YouTube.
