BackgroundVehicle engine exhaust includes ultrafine particles with a large surface area and containing absorbed polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, transition metals and other substances. Ultrafine particles and soluble chemicals can be transported from the airways to other organs, such as the liver, kidneys, and brain. Our aim was to investigate whether air pollution from traffic is associated with risk for other cancers than lung cancer.MethodsWe followed up 54,304 participants in the Danish… 
Outdoor air pollution and risk for kidney parenchyma cancer in 14 European cohorts
TLDR
There is suggestive evidence that exposure to outdoor PM at the residence may be associated with higher risk for kidney parenchyma cancer; the results should be interpreted cautiously as associations may be due to chance.
Ambient air pollution and primary liver cancer incidence in four European cohorts within the ESCAPE project
TLDR
Exposure to ambient air pollution at residence may increase the risk of liver cancer, according to suggestive evidence provided by the results.
Long‐term exposure to air pollution and liver cancer incidence in six European cohorts
  • R. So, Jie Chen, +49 authors Z. Andersen
  • Medicine
    International journal of cancer

TLDR
It is suggested that ambient air pollution may increase the risk of liver cancer, even at concentrations below current EU standards.
Long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and incidence of brain tumours: The Danish Nurse Cohort.
TLDR
Novel results that obese women may be susceptible to brain tumours and long-term exposure to air pollution in women older than 44 years are presented, as well as a positive tendency towards elevated risk for meninges and benign tumours, which require further investigation.
Traffic‐related air pollution and risk for leukaemia of an adult population
TLDR
An association between long‐term exposure to traffic‐related air pollution and acute myeloid leukaemia in the general population is indicated, but not for other subtypes ofLeukaemia.
Ambient Air Pollution and Cancer Mortality in the Cancer Prevention Study II
TLDR
It is suggested that ambient air pollution was not associated with death from most nonlung cancers, but associations with kidney, bladder, and colorectal cancer death warrant further investigation.
Chronic exposure to traffic-related air pollution and cancer incidence among 10,000 patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions: A historical prospective study
TLDR
Coronary patients exposed to TRAP are at increased risk of several types of cancer, particularly lung, prostate and breast, and identifying highly exposed patients may provide an opportunity to improve clinical care.
Traffic air pollution and mortality from cardiovascular disease and all causes: a Danish cohort study
TLDR
Traffic air pollution is associated with mortality from cardiovascular diseases and all causes, after adjustment for traffic noise, and the association was strongest for people with a low fruit and vegetable intake.
Air pollution from traffic and risk for brain tumors: a nationwide study in Denmark
TLDR
This study did not support the relatively strong linear association between air pollution and risk of brain tumors which was found in a cohort study based on only 95 cases, and the suggestion of an increased brain tumor risk at high exposures merits further attention.
Residential radon and lung cancer incidence in a Danish cohort.
TLDR
A positive association between radon and lung cancer risk consistent with previous studies is found but the role of chance cannot be excluded as these associations were not statistically significant and provide valuable information at the low-level radon dose range.

Air Pollution from Traffic and Risk for Lung Cancer in Three Danish Cohorts
TLDR
The study showed a modest association between air pollution from traffic and the risk for lung cancer and stresses the importance of strategies for reduction of population exposure to traffic-related air pollution.
Lung Cancer Incidence and Long-Term Exposure to Air Pollution from Traffic
TLDR
This study supports that risk for lung cancer is associated with different markers of air pollution from traffic from traffic near the residence, and shows tendencies of stronger associations among nonsmokers, among those with a relatively low fruit intake, and amongThose with a longer school attendance.
Urban Air Pollution and Lung Cancer in Stockholm
TLDR
It is indicated that urban air pollution increases lung cancer risk and that vehicle emissions may be particularly important.
Air pollution and risk of lung cancer in a prospective study in Europe
TLDR
A nonsignificant association between lung cancer and residence nearby heavy traffic roads is found and the association with NO2 did not change after adjustment by cotinine and additional potential confounders, including occupational exposures.
Air pollution and risk of urinary bladder cancer in a case-control study in Spain
TLDR
The small to moderate positive associations found for several indices of air pollution and bladder cancer, while suggestive of excess risk, require further evaluation in other settings.
Ambient exposure to criteria air pollutants and risk of death from bladder cancer in Taiwan.
TLDR
There is a significant positive association between the levels of air pollution and bladder cancer mortality and the findings of this study warrant further investigation of the role of air pollutants in the etiology of bladder cancer.

TLDR
Exposure in early life to high levels of PAHs may increase the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer; however, other confounders related to geography cannot be ruled out.
Ambient air pollution and brain cancer mortality
TLDR
Investigating whether particulate components of air pollution may be associated with brain cancer risk in humans found no elevated risk for estimated measures of air pollutants, but an unanticipated reduction in risk was found between gaseous air pollutants and brain cancer mortality.
Postmenopausal Breast Cancer Is Associated with Exposure to Traffic-Related Air Pollution in Montreal, Canada: A Case–Control Study
TLDR
Evidence is found of an association between the incidence of postmenopausal breast cancer and exposure to ambient concentrations of NO2 and other components of traffic-related pollution.
Lung cancer, cardiopulmonary mortality, and long-term exposure to fine particulate air pollution.
TLDR
Fine particulate and sulfur oxide--related pollution were associated with all-cause, lung cancer, and cardiopulmonary mortality and long-term exposure to combustion-related fine particulate air pollution is an important environmental risk factor for cardiopULmonary and lung cancer mortality.
