Know Your Exposure: A Cancer Quiz

Over a lifetime, our risk for developing cancer is affected by our exposure to all kinds of things. Chemicals, X-ray radiation and lifestyle can tilt the odds against us. Take our quiz to explore the risks, including some you can avoid.

Our series is produced with member station WNYC, and with WETA, whose documentary Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies will air on PBS in March.
