Coal miner

Coal minerThis is really scary.  Imagine what his lungs are like.

A coal miner takes a bath after finishing his shift at a mine in the north China province of Shanxi. China's coal industry is the world's most dangerous, as measured by the number of miners who are killed per year. In the first 10 months of 2007, there have been 3,069 deaths and on average since 2000, 6,000 miners have died in China every year.

He has lung cancer, it's just that lung tissue is dying faster than the tumor can grow so it's a wash.
