||Identification of occupational cancer risks in British Columbia: A population-based case-control study of 1129 cases of bladder cancer
||Aug. 2005, Vol.47, No.8, p.854-858. 22 ref.
||Data on lifetime occupational histories, smoking, and alcohol consumption were collected by self-administered questionnaire from 15,463 cancer patients. A matched case-control design was used to identify occupational risk factors for bladder cancer. Cases were those patients diagnosed with bladder cancer and controls consisted of all other cancer sites excluding lung cancers. Data were subjected to statistical analysis. Excess bladder cancer risks were observed in a number of occupations and industries, particularly those involving exposure to metals, paint and solvents, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, diesel engine emissions, textiles, silica and electromagnetic fields. These results are in line with those from the literature.
