NIOSH Firefigther Cancer Study Workshop


This study not only looked at deaths from cancer, but also at diagnoses of certain kinds of cancer that have higher survival rates, such as testicular and prostate cancer. This study also took into account the number and type of fire runs made (for example, EMS and vehicle fire), the use of personal protective equipment, and diesel exhaust controls. This workshop will discuss the risk for various cancers and illnesses among fire fighters compared to the general public.
