Abstract Cigarette smoking represents the main cause of lung cancer events. This is due to the carcinogenic compounds condensed onto particles generated during the combustion process and then inhaled through the mainstream side (i.e. the cigarette filter side) of the cigarette. The present paper applied a novel lung cancer risk model, able to take into account both ultrafine and coarse particle toxicity, to the particle concentration levels measured in the mainstream aerosol of cigarettes in… CONTINUE READING
