Scope

Exposure-response function for long-term (chronic) exposure to indoor air radon and risk of lung cancer.

Definition

Data

Darby et al. 2005 [1]

16% increase in the risk of lung cancer per 100 Bq/m3 increase in usual radon concentrations

Causality

Unit

RR per 100 Bq/m3

Formula

Algebra or other explicit methods if possible
(e.g. Analytica code between the ''<anacode></anacode>'' delimiters).

Result

1.16
