Consistent with previous studies, we report a higher lifetime prevalence of breast, melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers among flight crew relative to the general population. The most striking thing is that this happens even though there are small percentages of overweight and smokers in this professional group, "said Mordukovic".
A flight attendant's life may look glamorous, but the job comes with health hazards that go beyond managing surly passengers.
In a study published Monday in the journal Environmental Health, researchers at Harvard's T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that flight attendants were more likely to have cancer than the general population. Generally, with the number of babies a woman reproduces, her risk of acquiring breast cancer reduces.
As reported in the journal Environmental Health, study leader Eileen McNeely and team analysed a survey involving 5,366 U.S. flight attendants that was conducted between 2014 and 2015.
Which cancer risks are increased in flight attendants?
Compared to the other adults, flight attendants were 51 percent more likely to develop breast cancer.
Flight crew have higher rates of specific cancers than the general population, according to a study in the open access journal Environmental Health involving 5,366 USA flight attendants.
The authors recommend that further efforts be made in the United States to limit cancer risk among this work population such as radiation dose monitoring and the implementation of schedules that will lower exposure to radiation and prevent the disruption of circadian rhythms.
The Harvard University scientists behind the work came to their conclusion by examining data from more than 5,300 US-based flight attendants who filled out an online survey between December 2014 and June 2015 as part of the larger "Harvard Flight Attendant Health Study". As found in the study, the types of cancer that are most commonly observed in flight attendants are- uterine cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, and skin cancer.
The authors couldn't link cosmic radiation or circadian rhythm disruptions to breast cancer because they couldn't isolate these two factors.
And CVS is acquiring insurer Aetna in a bid to strengthen its business managing pharmacy benefits in the face of new competition. CVS shares tumbled nine percent in opening trading on the news, while Walgreens Boots Alliance slumped 10.5 percent.
Japan go through to the last due to Fifa Fair Play rule after receiving 3 yellow cards while Senegal received 6. There has been some talk that England might have an easier route at the World Cup if they lose in Kaliningrad.
Manchester City's De Bruyne is one of three Belgium players on a yellow, along with Thomas Meunier and Jan Verthongen. That means it could come down to the teams' disciplinary records and if that doesn't separate them, drawing lots.

New Zealand man Troy Skinner traveled more than 8,000 miles in an attempt to meet with the child he had been talking to online. Agnew did not speculate about what he believed Skinner would have done had he gotten inside, as the Associated Press reported.
With Senegal and Japan both on four points, Colombia and Senegal could both progress with a draw but only if Japan lose to Poland. But the problem for Senegal is they've also conceded three goals, which is where I think Colombia can take that advantage.
Therefore, it seems as though there's very little potential for any negative drama to happen between the two moving forward. The Cleveland Cavaliers star will decide whether or not to opt in to the final year of his contract with the Cavs by Friday.
