 that air pollution is a major cause of lung cancer. Shanxi Medical School sophomore cancer treatment experts: I believe that friends will have such a sentiment, cancer around friends, relatives and more and more people suffering from lung cancer in particular, special, and this is how it happened?

According to the China’s third cause of death in the findings are confirmed, cancer deaths have become urban residents in the first leading cause of death among lung cancer incidence, mortality ahead, topped the list. In the past 30 years, the mortality rate of lung cancer increased 465 percent over the same period 95% increase in breast cancer mortality.

Secondhand smoke, air pollution is a major cause of lung cancer

High incidence of lung cancer is a product of social development in developing countries, and its incidence increases with an aging population, rural and urban industrialization and urbanization process accelerated rise, at present, the incidence of lung cancer in developed countries has begun to decline, Africa and other poor countries, the incidence of has been low. This developing industrial emissions, vehicle exhaust, indoor environmental pollution and unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking are closely related. If environmental factors controllability relies on the overall progress of society, then, smoking is the most personal and social controllable carcinogenic and anti-cancer factor, because smoking has become an internationally recognized oncology community one of the factors most important cause of lung cancer. A survey shows that China’s current total amount of 320 million smokers, long-term by “passive smoking” aggressor up to 540 million of these people will become a huge reserve army of lung cancer. Whole community to actively tobacco, personal proactively prevent lung cancer is to quit an important measure.
