||Esophageal cancer and occupation in a cohort of Swedish men
||May 1995, Vol.27, No.5, p.749-757. 34 ref.
||Data from the Cancer Environment Registry of Sweden were analyzed for the period 1961 to 1979. A general reduction in oesophageal cancer incidence was found among agricultural and professional workers, whereas excess incidence was found among business, sales and some craftsmen and production jobs. Elevated incidence was associated with the food, beverage and tobacco industries, vulcanizing shops within the rubber industry, and certain automotive building industries. Incidence was also increased among brewery workers and butchers and some service sector workers. The possible role of lifestyle factors (smoking and alcohol drinking) in some of the occupational associations is discussed.
