Flight attendants are more likely to get certain cancers.

That's according to a new study in Environmental Health.

Researchers found flight attendants are more likely to get non-melanoma skin cancer, uterine, gastrointestinal, cervical and thyroid cancers.

Researchers believe that's because flight attendants are often exposed to more carcinogens than the general public.
