    Assertion : Sometimes nonsmokers are prone to lung cancer.
    Reason : Nonsmokers are also called passive smokers.

    Indoor atmospheres and other confined spaces are often contaminated by tobacco smoke which is inhaled involuntarily by both smokers and nonsmokers. It is called involuntary smoke inhalation or passive smoking. It is now recognized as a cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers.
