Adding to the anti-smoking furor is a new study showing that women who don't smoke but live with a spouse who does, run a 30 percent greater risk of getting lung cancer than women in a smoke-free household. The research effort, the largest of its kind, also found that the more the mate smoked, the greater the risk for the woman. But even women without a smoking spouse increase their chances of lung cancer through exposure to secondhand smoke at work or in social settings, the study found.
