Considerations for Air Pollution and Lung Cancer: Genotoxicity and Molecular Biomarker Data from Experimental and Human Studies


It has long been postulated that lung cancer may result from long-term exposure to ambient air pollution; the actual excess risk has nevertheless been estimated to be considerably less than that associated with tobacco smoking (Higgins, 1976; Pershagen, 1990). In confirmation of the early studies, recent epidemiological investigations have observed an… (More)
