    Sure you can, but there are also genetic components. Also, that pollution can come from many sources including your spouse, fires, and other natural sources. Don't forget your charging cords can also be a problem.

    Why don't you just look up the word carcinogen instead of constantly asking juvenile questions?

    It depends on the source of the pollution - but YES - certain kinds of air bourn pollutions have been proven to cause cancer.

    Yes you can. What do you think second hand smoke is. Pollution. People living near factories are more likely to develop cancer or respiratory problems.
