Title Cutting oils and bladder cancer
Bibliographic information Oct. 1983, Vol.9, No.5, p.449-450. 15 ref.
Abstract This letter reviews evidence from studies in the USA, England, Canada, Finland, and Italy indicating that an excess of bladder cancer is occurring amongst machinists and other metal workers exposed to cutting and antirust oils. Aromatic amines used as antioxidants in such oils could be a contributing factor.
