Possible Link Between Silicosis and Lung Cancer Explored

A new study published by a team of researchers at the University of Cologne in Germany recently completed a study to determine if there is a link between silica exposure and lung cancer among workers who are not suffering from silicosis. They combed through past studies published over the past 42 years on the subject. Their findings were inconclusive, but they feel that additional research is needed to explore if such a relationship does exist.
