Molecular Oncology – In this study, researchers illustrate how common occupational exposures are and discuss challenges in estimating their global prevalence and their contribution to the burden of occupational cancer. The population attributable fraction for lung cancer due to occupational exposure has been estimated to be between 18 and 25% in men and 2–6% in women, resulting in lung cancer being the most prevalent occupational cancer. Actions to reduce exposures and research to fill gaps in knowledge adapted to local settings are warranted to mitigate the occupational cancer burden, especially in under-researched settings including low and middle income countries.
