Fine particle air pollution and lung cancer risk: Extending the long list of health risks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Exposures to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) concentrations above the WHO guidelines affect 99% of the world population. In a recent issue of Nature, Hill et al. dissect the tumor promotion paradigm orchestrated by PM2.5 inhalation exposures in lung carcinogenesis, supporting the hypothesis that PM2.5 can increase your risk of lung carcinoma without ever smoking.
