Get the facts about lung cancer and asbestos and cigarettes
- Asbestos exposure is a proven cause of lung cancer.
- Cigarette smoking is a proven cause of lung cancer.
- A person that is regularly exposed to asbestos is at approximately 5 times greater risk for developing lung cancer.
- A heavy cigarette smoker is at approximately 10 times greater risk for developing lung cancer.
- There is a “synergy” between asbestos exposure and smoking cigarettes, so that a person who is both a smoker and regularly exposed to asbestos is at approximately 50 times greater risk of developing lung cancer. This means that the asbestos risk and smoking risk are not merely added to each other, but they interact together and multiply a person’s risk of developing lung cancer.
- Companies that made asbestos products and cigarettes knew that their products caused lung cancer going all the way back to the 1950s or earlier.
