||Stomach cancer risk among black and white men and women: The role of occupation and cigarette smoking
||Oct. 1995, Vol.37, No.10, p.1218-1223. 35 ref.
||A telephone interview survey was carried out to determine occupational and tobacco-use histories for 739 stomach cancer cases and 3750 population controls. Cigarette smokers had a 50% increase in stomach cancer risk; risk increased with increasing levels of smoking. The majority of occupations with significant increases in stomach cancer risk were among white men and included agricultural workers, driver sales, assembly workers, mechanics and material movers. Black women assembly workers and white women food workers were also at increased risk. No association was found between dust exposure and stomach cancer.
