The first sentence of the news item, "cause of lung cancer" [121, 662 (6 May 1955)] is misleading because it does not state that the tests were carried out on mice. Kotin's actual words were: "Air pollutants synthetically reproduced in inhalation chambers resulted in a significantly greater yield of lung tumors in exposed mice when contrasted with those in pure air chambers."
