As Altitude Rises, Lung Cancer Rates Fall

The scientists are finally wising up to the fact that it is the CO2/oxygen causing these effects. I only wish they did a study on all types of cancer and not only lung cancer, but I suspect that the results will be the same.

"...Americans who live in the mountains seem to have lower rates of lung cancer than those closer to the beach -- a pattern that suggests a role for oxygen intake, researchers speculate."

Re: As altitude rises, so do lung cancer rates

Check the title :mrgreen: It seems to be like this for all cancers:

Although there are some... confounding factors

Lol, thanks for pointing that out! I changed it so people don't get confused.
Yeah, I saw the maps you posted so I am hoping that the next study from this group will look at all cancer rates. Most people on the street rely on WebMD for their medical info so I think public health benefits when "official" medicine admits to Peat being right (again).
