Título Cancer among potash workers in Saskatchewan
Información bibliográfica Sep 2008, Vol.50, No.9, p.1035-1041. Illus. 26 ref.
Resumen The objective of this study was to investigate factors contributing to the increased risk of developing cancer among potash mine workers. Data on 1434 male potash workers based on a nested case-control study design were analyzed. An occupational history of farming (risk ratio RR 1.79), presence of pleurisy at baseline (RR 1.90), previous hard rock mining experience (RR 1.74) and age significantly elevated the risk of cancer, as did the interaction between respiratory diseases and smoking status.
