In a recent study by Williams et al (2020) it was demonstrated that proximity to an oil refinery was associated with a statistically significant increased risk of incident cancer diagnosis across all cancer types…studies such as these highlight the importance of understanding the gases, particularly benzene, that are being emitted from these sites and how they are effecting the air quality around them.
