||Occupational cancer among women: Where have we been and where are we going?
||Dec. 2003, Vol.44, No.6, p.565-575. 129 ref.
||Estimates of the proportion of cancers among women attributable to occupation are based on research conducted mainly in the 1970s, among men and in developed countries. These studies do not reflect the important changes in the participation of women in the workplace during the last few decades or the patterns of employment of women in developing countries. Occupational cancer researchers need to expand their focus on women and on developing countries and new technologies. They should also use sophisticated exposure assessment methods, and, where appropriate, incorporate molecular epidemiological techniques to discover new occupational carcinogens and to identify the areas where better control measures are needed.
