Rarely mentioned as a significant cause of cancer is wood smoke which is 12 times more carcinogenic than equivalent amounts of secondhand cigarette smoke and remains biologically active
40 times longer. Yet this is "the fastest-growing form of pollution in most American cities," according to the EPA. Wood-burning grills, outdoor fire pits are increasingly popular and increasingly harmful.
Unfortunately, there is little if any regulation as to their use.
