||Cancer mortality among French atomic energy commission workers
||Jan. 2004, Vol.45, No.1, p.34-44. 56 ref.
||All causes and cancer mortality of 58,320 workers employed at French Atomic Energy Commission (Commissariat Ó l'Energie Atomique) between 1946 and 1994 were compared with that of the general population in a retrospective cohort study. Standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) were calculated. Between 1968 and 1994, 4,809 deaths occurred. A healthy worker effect is observed for both men (SMR=0.57) and women (SMR=0.72). Nine sites of cancer death were found to be in statistically significant deficit among men, none among women. An excess of pleural cancers (SMR=1.79) and malignant melanoma (SMR=1.50) are observed among men, while a marginally-significant excess of breast cancer is observed among women (SMR =1.14).
