    Article - En anglais

    A case-control study was undertaken to investigate the role of residential radon exposure for lung cancer.

    The study included 210 women with lung cancer diagnosed from 1983-1986 in the county of Stockholm and 191 hospital and 209 population controls.

    Interviews provided information on lifetime residences and smoking.

    Radon concentrations measured in 1,573 residences of the study subjects showed a lognormal distribution with arithmetic and geometric means of 127.7 and 96.0 Bq m-3, respectively.
