In never-smokers, air pollution may result in lung cancer

According to late-breaking research [to be] presented at the ESMO Congress 2022 by scientists of the Francis Crick Institute and University College London, funded by Cancer Research UK, a new mechanism has been identified through which very small pollutant particles in the air may cause lung cancer in people who have never smoked, opening the door to new prevention strategies and the development of therapies. The particles, which are commonly present in fossil fuel smoke and vehicle exhaust, are linked to a higher risk of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which is responsible for approximately 250,000 lung cancer-related deaths worldwide each year.
