Environment International – The aim of this study was to address the relationship between long-term low-level air pollution (PM2.5) exposure and lung cancer incidence. The results show that exposure to PM2.5 was associated with higher risk of lung cancer. Long-term ambient PM2.5exposure at the residential address may contribute to lung cancer incidence even at concentrations lower than current EU limit values (25 µg/m3) and possibly WHO Air Quality Guidelines (10 µg/m3).
