8 Radioactive Jobs and Their Cancer Risks

Airline Pilots

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, were intrigued by a large analysis showing an increased risk for melanoma in airline pilots and cabin crew. They were especially concerned about the cumulative effect of hours spent in the cockpit behind plastic or glass windshields, which might heighten the effect of radiation. What they found was alarming: One hour in an airplane cockpit is equivalent to 20 minutes in a UV-A tanning bed in terms of exposure to potentially carcinogenic radiation. In a research letter in JAMA Dermatology (December 2014), they also reported that while airplane windshields protect against UV-B radiation, they do not shield cabin crews from UV-A radiation, the type that is linked to . They also found that when planes fly above clouds or snowy fields, light reflection might bump up radiation exposure even more. The researchers recommend upgraded UV protection for pilots, as well as a rethinking of safety guidelines for job-related UV radiation exposure.
