Breathing at sea level maybe hazardous to your health, a new study hints. Comparing cancer rates for people living at various elevations found that lung cancer rates are lower at high elevations, where the air is thinner.

If every person in the United States lived at elevations above 3,400 meters, such as atop Mount Hood in Oregon, there would be about 65,000 fewer cases of lung cancer each year, researchers Kamen Simeonov and Daniel Himmelstein estimate. (In 2014, an estimated 224,210 new cases of lung cancer were expected in the United States.) The findings could mean that lung cancer is linked to altitude--more specifically to the amount of oxygen in the air, the researchers report online...
