Previous studies have shown associations between air pollution and risk for lung cancer. The authors investigated whether traffic and the concentration of nitrogen oxides (NOx) at the residence are associated with risk for lung cancer.

Projections of the incidence of cancer serve several purposes. These range from making investment decisions on cancer treatment facilities and planning manpower requirements, to formulation and evaluation of policies for control of cancer. Different statistical methods can be used for such projections. In recent years, these have been translated to user-friendly software application modules. (Editorial)

New Delhi: Ongoing public protests in Muzaffarpur over an upcoming asbestos plant have forced the district administration to impose Section 144 near the facility, forcing stoppage of work and preventing protesters from gathering near the site.

Srinagar: Smoking has taken its toll on the males in the Kashmir Valley with the highest number of lung cancer cases being reported in the state so far this year. Till October this year, 316 cases of lung cancer were registered at the Sher- e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS).

This report is the first comprehensive literature review to come out of HEI's Public Health and Air Pollution in Asia (PAPA) program. The review builds on an initial assessment conducted in 2004 and describes the current scope of the Asian literature on the health effects of outdoor air pollution, enumerating and classifying more than 400 studies.

Kolontar (Hungary): Workers raced to build an emergency dam in western Hungary on Sunday as cracks in a reservoir widened, threatening to unleash a second torrent of toxic sludge on the village of Kolontar and nearby rivers.

Lung cancer accounts for a substantial proportion of cancer incidence and mortality throughout the world. Epidemiologic data suggest that Chinese women have a high incidence of lung cancer in relation to their smoking prevalence.

Aircraft emissions impact human health though degradation of air quality. The majority of previous analyses of air quality impacts from aviation have considered only landing and takeoff emissions. We show that aircraft cruise emissions impact human health over a hemispheric scale and provide the first estimate of premature mortalities attributable to aircraft emissions globally.
