As fossil fuel use falls, the evidence is now strongest for an increased risk of lung cancer caused by exposure to nitrogen oxides, particularly exposure to trafﬁc fumes.
In addition, passive smoking also contributes to continuing the ‘family circle’ of smoking and there is much evidence of the harmful effects on children in ‘smoking’ households including respiratory disease, asthma attacks, cot deaths, and middle ear infections. This is why many countries have now banned smoking in public places. As well as removing the unpleasant (for non-smokers) effects of cigarette smoking, the risk of lung cancer for the population as a whole should reduce. This will be helped by emerging evidence that where bans have been enforced there has been rapid and sustained falls in overall tobacco consumption.
