Exposition résidentielle au radon et cancer du poumon chez les non-fumeurs Volume 18, issue 6, November-December 2019



This news is based on the following article: Lorenzo-Gonzalez M, Ruano-Ravina A, Torres-Duran M, et al. Lung cancer and residential radon in never-smokers: a pooling study in the Northwest of Spain. Environ Res 2019 ; 172 : 713-8. doi : 10.1016/j.envres.2019.03.011


Adding to the scarce literature specific to never-smokers, this study pooling data from several recent investigations in areas of potentially high radon exposure in northwest Spain clearly indicates that this exposure is associated with a higher risk of lung cancer.
