Título A cohort mortality study of painters and allied tradesmen
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1986, Vol.12, No.1, p.16-21. 21 ref.
Resumen The mortality experience of 57.175 workers in 4 states in the USA, from 1975 to 1979 was examined. No excess mortality was observed for the total union membership when compared to that of all US white males. When the study population was subdivided by the trade affiliation, members of locals comprised primarily of painters exhibited a significant elevation in mortality from all malignant neoplasms, lung and stomac cancer, compared to all US white males. This observation still remained after the data was treated to reduce the effect of non occupational activities. In addition, there was a statistically significant difference in mortality from leukemia and cancer of the bladder observed between the groups.
