About the Cover

This issue’s featured article, “Lung Cancer Worry and Home Screening for Radon and Secondhand Smoke in Renters,” explored the relationships between demographic factors, lung cancer worry, and completion of home screening for radon and secondhand smoke among renters. The study found that renters who had at least one smoker in the home and those with a lower education level were more likely to report lung cancer worry. Renters pose a particular challenge because they may feel powerless to control decisions that influence air quality beyond their own space. As such, policies designed to protect air quality in rental properties are essential.
