A study by a university in Holland claims that people who go to church regularly may be increasing their risk of developing lung cancer because of the poor quality air produced by candles and incenses in churches. The study revealed that after 9 hours of candle burning the air quality was worse than that of an area used by 45,000 vehicles and researchers found free radicals and fine particulate matter in the air as well. The exact risk has not been defined but these preliminary results certainly warrant further investigation.
