International studies have shown that firefighters have a significantly higher risk of developing cancer in comparison to the average wider population. Because of insufficient proof of the interrelationship between cancer and the different cases of fire, in many countries this is still not recognized as being an occupational illness. Especially here, in the case of fire, various structures of cancer causing substances are released which can lead to illness when coming into contact with people and equipment.
