An international team of scientists, led by NTU Singapore, has linked increased air pollution to an uptick in cases of lung adenocarcinoma (LADC) worldwide. g/m 3 ) increment of black carbon is associated with a 12% increase in LADC incidence globally. Black carbon is a pollutant that is classified as under PM 2.5. In our study, we were able to determine that the global increase of lung adenocarcinoma is likely associated with air pollution.
