  1. We need studies to determine the extent to which ETS differs from MS in ways related to health and their relative toxicities.

  2. We should analyze toxic and carcinogenic agents in smoke-polluted environments, especially enclosed natural environments, and their uptake by nonsmokers.

  3. Research should be conducted on interactions between ETS and radon daughters, especially as radon daughters can adhere to RSP, and can thereby enter the lung.
