Evidence suggests that people living in urban areas have an increased risk of lung cancer due to higher levels of air pollution in these areas. Benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) is currently used as the main indicator of carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in air pollution, but there is concern that B[a]P may not be the ideal surrogate of choice for PAH mixtures since higher potency PAHs have recently been identified which could potentially contribute more and variably to the overall… CONTINUE READING
