Cancer rates are higher in flight attendants
Researchers during a study have discovered that flight attendants in U.S. cabin crews are more prone to different types of cancers. The types of cancers may be breast, cervix, skin, uterus and thyroid cancers. And also gastrointestinal cancers like colon, stomach, liver and pancreatic cancers.
One possible explanation given by researchers as the cause of these cancers is that the flight attendants are openly exposed to a lot of carcinogens (cancer causing agents) at their work environment.
One of the harmful carcinogens is cosmic ionizing radiation, which is generally present at higher altitudes. This radiation attacks the DNA and causes cancers like breast and skin cancer.
