||Prostate cancer and driving occupations: Could whole body vibration play a role?
||Apr. 2009, Vol.82, No.5, p.551-556. 34 ref.
||This literature survey reviews the risk of prostate cancer among whole body vibration related occupations. Based on five case-control and three cohort studies involving driving published between 1996 and 2004, a pooled relative risk estimate of 1.14 was calculated. This increase was not statistically significant.
