  1. Lung cancers associated with thorotrast exposure : high incidence of small-cell carcinoma and implications for estimation of radon risk.

    Article - En anglais

    The widely accepted concept that the alpha-emitting radionuclide radon (222Rn, 220Rn) induces lung cancers in humans has been based on the excess of lung tumours observed in underground miners extracting uranium or other substances.

    However, this poses the important question of whether radon is the only carcinogenic factor because such miners are also heavily exposed to mine dusts including silicates, diesel exhaust, etc. in their working environment.
