Studies have shown that people working in certain professions، such as flight attendants، are more likely to develop health problems than those working in other occupations، as the Technical Times said.

These health problems include different types of cancer including breast and skin cancer.

Researchers have attributed the high risk to a number of factors such as exposure to different kinds of chemicals and radiation in the workplace، exposure to too much sunlight، or disruption in circadian rhythms.

Below is a list of jobs that may increase people's risk of developing cancer.

Workplace And Cancer Risk
According to the American Cancer Society، the rate of workplace-related cancers has dropped significantly over the past few decades due to the increase of safety regulations.

Only around 4 percent of cancers in the United States are attributable to occupational exposure to cancer-causing substances، known as carcinogens. In the United Kingdom، on the other hand، 5 percent of cancer deaths were related to occupational exposure.

Furthermore، three to six percent of all cancers worldwide have been caused by exposures to these substances.

Farming
Since farmers spend most of their time working outside on a daily basis، they are more likely to expose themselves to too much sunlight. Too much ultraviolet or UV radiation from the sun is known to be the main cause of the deadliest kind of skin cancer called melanoma.
