How Does Air Pollution Cause Lung Cancer?

Postby Jeriel » Fri Oct 06, 2017 7:00 am

Okay so I know that smoking destroys your cilia on your epithelial tissue. So knowing that can you give me a detailed explanation of how air pollution causes lung cancer.

For example:
Air pollution causes lung cancer because the particles are trapped iin the lung and become infected with cancer.
Now I know that isnt the answer.

Thanks soooo much for your help.

A poor environment is a RISK factor but to say it CAUSES lung cancer is over simplistic.


From what I know, carcinogenic substances increase the risk of cell mutations - possibly leading to abnormal tissue growth and then cancer.

No one knows what causes cancer ? any cancer. Most cancers have several risk factors and many of those tend to be conditions that cause chronic irritation and/or inflammation of tissues, such as smoking, air pollution, asbestos, lung scars, COPD, etc. does to the lungs and are all risk factors.
