Climate change & Cancer

Climate change is a delayed reaction that our children will experience many years from now.

From the National Institute of
Environmental Health Sciences
:

• Increased exposure to toxic chemicals, known or suspected to cause cancer, that are released into the environment following heavy rainfall or flooding and by increased volatilization of chemicals under conditions of increased temperature.
• Depletion of stratospheric ozone leads to an increase in UV exposure and temperature, increasing the risk of skin cancer and cataracts.A decline in air quality and rise in concentrations of certain air pollutants increases the risk of lung cancer.

•A decline in air quality and rise in concentrations of certain air pollutants increases the risk of lung cancer.
