1. Li P, et al. (2012). Third National Death Cause Survey (NDCS) Occupational agents represent an important cause of cancer, but indoor radon plays a relatively limited role in cancer causes in China.

2. Downs TJ, et al. (2010). We piloted participatory testing and reporting that combined relatively simple tests with actionable reporting to empower residents in Main South/Piedmont neighborhoods of Worcester, Massachusetts.

3. Attfield MD, et al. (2012). Diesel Exhaust in Miners Study (DEMS) The study findings provide further evidence that exposure to diesel exhaust increases risk of mortality from lung cancer and have important public health implications.

4. Demoury C, et al. (2017). Geocap Study | Incidence Study We did not see evidence of any association between acute leukemia incidence rates and exposure to radon or gamma radiation in France in a nationwide incidence study over a 20-year period, using fine scale exposure assessment.

5. Barros-Dios JM, et al. (2012). The presence of airborne radon even at low concentrations poses a risk of developing lung cancer, with tobacco habit increasing considerably this risk. tobacco Radon Controls for disease:Lung Neoplasms | Subjects with disease:Lung Neoplasms | Study subjects Spain Radon Details Adenocarcinoma | Carcinoma, Large Cell | Carcinoma, Squamous Cell | Lung Neoplasms | Small Cell Lung Carcinoma
6. Ruano-Ravina A, et al. (2012). The concentrations of residential radon in never-smoker lung cancer patients are very high, at about three times the average concentration of residential radon to which the general population is exposed in Galicia, Spain.

7. Chen J, et al. (2012). Based on the more accurate radon distribution characteristics obtained from the recent cross-Canada radon survey, a re-assessment of Canadian population risk for radon induced lung cancer was undertaken. The theoretical estimates show that 16% of lung cancer deaths among Canadians are attributable to indoor radon exposure. Radon Study subjects Canada air, indoor Radon Details Lung Neoplasms
8. Leng S, et al. (2015). Saccomanno Uranium Miner Cohort An IL6 promoter variant was associated with lung cancer in uranium miners (exposed to radon) and never smokers in two external study populations; the associations are strongly supported by the functional relevance that the IL6 promoter SNP affects basal expression and carcinogen-induced IL6 secretion. genetics Radon Controls for disease:Carcinoma, Squamous Cell | Subjects with disease:Carcinoma, Squamous Cell | Controls for disease:Lung Neoplasms | Subjects with disease:Lung Neoplasms | Workers United States Details Carcinoma, Squamous Cell | Lung Neoplasms
9. Walczak K, et al. (2016). The aim of this study has been to preliminary estimate radon concentrations and doses that are possible to derive in the air of the spas that use geothermal water for medicinal and recreation purposes. Radon Workers Poland air Radon Details
10. Afolabi OT, et al. (2015). The radon levels obtained in most assessed offices in Obafemi Awolowo University were found to be within the permissible reference levels, and levels showed a significant decline with height of office building, with the highest mean concentration of radon occuring in offices located on the basement, ground floor, and first floor.

11. Chahine T, et al. (2011). Our models provide an approach for leveraging publicly available information from nationally representative data to capture correlations among parameters affecting both residential radon exposure and subsequent risk of lung cancer given smoking patterns.
