||Exposures in painting related occupations and risk of selected cancers: Results from a case-control study in Montreal
||June 2008, Vol.51, No.6, p.419-427. 28 ref.
||The objective of this study was to evaluate risk of cancers other than lung cancer in painting-related professions. A large population based case-control study was carried out during 1979-1986 in Montreal including several types of cancer and their relationship with occupational exposures. Data on lifetime job histories were obtained from interviews and evaluated by a team of industrial hygienists to assign exposure. Seven types of cancer were analysed: oesophagus, stomach, colorectal, prostate, bladder, kidney and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. For each cancer type, a pooled control group was constituted from 533 population controls and 533 cancer patients selected from other types of cancer. Odds ratios were estimated for each of the paint-related agents and each of the seven cancer types, adjusting for several potential confounders, including smoking. Painting was not associated with risk of any of the cancers under study. Other findings are discussed.
