In a shocking case reported, a 28-year-old non-smoking woman from Delhi has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.

The doctors at the Ganga Ram Hospital in the city were stunned to learn this, as the woman comes from a non-smoking family. Pollution and toxicity in the capital's air could be the main reason, according to the doctors. Chest Surgeon at the hospital, Dr. Arvind Kumar, said, "The patient is a non-smoker. In fact, no one smokes in her family. So there is no other choice but to accept that this is due to the polluted air of Delhi. We have seen many such cases before in which the patient is a non-smoker but is suffering from lung cancer, but this is the first such case in which the patient is suffering from lung cancer due to polluted air."

On being asked if the highly polluted locality where the woman resides in could be responsible for her condition, he stated, "The air has no boundaries. As it blows, it also carries the pollution with itself and can leave its effect anywhere in the city. The same poisonous chemical is being found in Delhi's air which is found in a cigarette.

Smoke from five cigarettes to 20 cigarettes is present in Delhi's air. You cannot be a non-smoker if you live in Delhi."
