The association between lung cancer incidence and ambient air pollution in China

Abstract: 
China's serious air pollution and has caused it to have the highest lung cancer burden in the world. This study examines the associations between lung cancer incidence and fine particles (PM2.5) and ozone in China. It concludes that the increased risks of lung cancer incidence were associated with PM2.5 and ozone air pollution. Control measures to reduce air pollution caused by urbanization and industry would likely lower the future incidence of lung cancer. This paper provides a spatiotemporal health dataset that would be useful for further study on air pollution and urbanization.
