Higher cancer rates found in military pilots, ground crews

The Pentagon said the new study was one of the largest and most comprehensive to date. An earlier study had looked at just Air Force pilots and had found some higher rates of cancer, while this one looked across all services and at both air and ground crews. Even with the wider approach, the Pentagon cautioned that the actual number of cancer cases was likely to be even higher because of gaps in the data, which it said it would work to remedy.

Breathing in AVGAS fumes, recirculated air from EDCs that “consume” oil. RF all over the place…
