Resumen A follow-up mortality study of 833 men known to be working in the tanning industry in 1939 in the United Kingdom (573 worked in making leather tanned by vegetable extracts for soles and heels, 260 in making leather tanned by chrome, for the upper parts of shoes). There were no significant excesses of deaths due to any commonly occurring cancer. In fact, among workers in the first group, deaths from all causes and deaths from causes other than malignant neoplasms were significantly lower than expected. There was 1 death due to nasal cancer and 1 death due to soft tissue tumour.
