Title Coronary risk factors in various occupational groups: The Oslo study.
Bibliographic information 1977, Vol.31, No.2, p.96-100. 7 ref.
Abstract Coronary risk factors (CRF) were recorded for some 15,000 men agd 40-49 years in Oslo. There was fairly good agreement between mortality statistics for Norway and CRF in many occupations: for example, teachers have low CRF and mortality rates, while motor vehicle drivers have high mortality rates from lung cancer and coronary heart disease consistent with their smoking habits, serum triglycerides and cholesterol levels. Results for 43 occupational groups are tabulated.
