Lung Cancer and Airborne Contaminants Discussed in New Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational video about important environmental, health & safety (EHS) issues.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths and the second most common cancer among both men and women in the United States. The agency states that the most important thing a person can do to lower their lung cancer risk is to quit smoking and to avoid secondhand smoke. The second leading cause of lung cancer is radon, a naturally occurring gas that comes from rocks and dirt and can get trapped in houses and buildings.
“People can also be exposed to substances and chemical compounds at work that could increase their chances of developing lung cancer,”said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network. “There are many known workplace carcinogens that may be present in dusts or fumes, including, but by no means limited to: asbestos, arsenic, diesel exhaust, and some forms of silica and chromium. A number of these same substances may also be present in people’s homes and communities. For example, asbestos and radon can be found in many homes from coast to coast. We hope this new video helps to shed some light on this topic.”
This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental, ProcessMAP and Healthy Indoors magazine to name a few.
