The "R" Word

Whilst killing time at a recent town meeting, I perused the pamphlet on
"Second Hand Smoke" by the American Lung Association.

There in the middle of the second page, was one, and only one, reference to
They state the following:

"What this could mean is that tobacco smoke and radiation may have this in
common, there are just no safe levels of exposure."

Doesn't the ALA recommend periodic chest X-rays?
