Summary for 2014

Date:Monday Sep 15, 2014

Title:Pilots, cabin crew and melanoma risk

Abstract:Pilots and cabin crew have approximately twice the incidence of melanoma compared with the general population, according to a recent study. While the study design could not establish whether exposure to the sun during flight time is responsible for the increased risk, the authors call for "further research on mechanisms and optimal occupational protection".
