||Nickel metal not associated with lung cancer risk
||2011, Vol.54, p.419. 4 ref.
||This letter to the Editor consists of a critique to an article published in the journal in 2010 (see ISN 111556), which concluded that workers exposed to nickel, chromium and cadmium were at an increased risk of lung cancer. The letter focuses on nickel and contests the conclusions drawn concerning the carcinogenicity of the metallic form, citing various inconsistencies and lack of evidence.
