Study links air pollution from busy roads to breast cancer

A new study has suggested that working near busy roads could trigger breast cancer.

The research, which was published in the journal New Solutions revealed  that at least six women working at the same bridge got breast cancer within three years of one another.

The scientists said chemicals from air pollution in this area could be responsible. The group of women all developed a cancer believed to have been caused by exhaust fumes in what researchers have branded a ‘new occupational disease’ reports Sam Blanchard of Mail Online.

The study said there is a one in 10,000 chance the cases were a coincidence as the cancers were all so similar and close together. Also, another group of seven women developed the disease after working at a tunnel just four miles away at the border between the US and Canada.

According to the Mail Online report, Doctors Michael Gilbertson and Jim Brophy, from the University of Stirling in Scotland, believe chemicals in the traffic fumes causes cancer.
