Subjects with high levels of both chemicals, which are byproducts of tobacco smoke, had 8.5 times the risk of developing lung cancer that those with low levels of the chemicals had. The urine test is not yet available to the general public, and the researchers say a commercial version of the test will take at least three to five years to develop Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
