US study of people with early-stage disease adds to evicence about the health impact of airborne toxins
Air pollution may shorten the life of people who are suffering from lung cancer, researchers have found.
The findings, which add to growing evidence about the health impact of airborne toxins, show that those diagnosed with early-stage lung cancer are most at risk of an early death. That applies in particular to people with adenocarcinoma, the commonest form on non-small cell lung cancer, which accounts for 80% of cases of the disease.
