Does smoking increase my health risks?
Your family's risk of developing lung cancer from radon depends on several factors, including the average annual level of radon in your home and the amount of time you spend there. The longer your exposure to radon, the greater the risk. The risk is much greater for smokers. Smoking combined with radon exposure greatly increases your risk of lung cancer. Until you can reduce the radon level in your home, do not smoke in the home and ask other people not to smoke while in your home.
