||Cancer risk in the semiconductor industry: A call for action
||Apr.-June 2002, Vol.8, No.2, p.163-168. 19 ref.
||While many known carcinogens are used in the manufacture of semiconductors, no broad epidemiological study has been conducted to define possible risks. This paper outlines the health hazards associated with exposure to carcinogens in the semiconductor industry and calls for a large and definitive study of cancer in semiconductor workers across a range of countries and manufacturing processes.
