Why Flight Attendants Are More Prone to Cancer Than the General Population

Excessive radiation is a challenge for everyone – especially those that spend the majority of their working lives at 30,000 feet.

This can also apply to the road warriors that spend quite a bit of time flying.

There are things you can do to help minimize the damage to your health (see article).

One not mentioned in the article below is drinking green tea, which has been shown to help the body to release the radiation.


  • While previous research has found flight attendants have higher rates of breast cancer and melanoma, recent research expands that list, finding the same trend for non-melanoma, uterine, cervical, gastrointestinal and thyroid cancers as well
  • Compared to the general population, female cabin crew report 1.5 times higher rates of breast cancer, over twice the melanoma and four times the rate of non-melanoma skin cancer
  • Breast cancer rates are also higher among flight attendants with multiple children, which is surprising as childbirth and breastfeeding lower a woman’s risk of breast cancer
  • Explanations for the elevated cancer risk among flight attendants include circadian rhythm disruptions due to irregular work schedules, exposure to carcinogens such as pesticides, fire retardant chemicals and jet fuel, and exposure to high levels of cosmic ionizing radiation
