||The objective of this study was to investigate the occurrence of ischaemic heart disease in a cohort of restaurant workers in Sweden, constituted from the data of the Swedish National Census of 1970. The cohort was followed from 1970 until 1995 and linked to the death registry. An increased risk due to ischaemic heart disease mortality was observed among kitchen workers, possibly related to air pollutants in these work environments.
