    It’s often difficult to pin cancer cases on specific causes. However, industries exposing workers to airborne toxins like asbestos, silica dust, radon, and environmental pollutants are high on the list of culprits responsible for lung cancer. Lung cancer kills more than 150,000 people a year, and it is estimated that 15% of these cases–some 22,500 people–are a result of working in high-risk jobs like shipbuilding, pipe fitting, asbestos installation, tile work, welding, refinery work, and sanding. Asbestos, fiberglass, and other particulates are inhaled, settle in lungs, and eventually lead to cancer.
