||A 50-year mortality follow-up study of a large cohort of oil refinery workers in Texas
||May 1996, Vol.38, No.5, p.492-506. 43 ref.
||In a mortality study of 17,844 individuals who had worked at a Texas oil refinery between 1937 and 1987, 6799 deaths were identified. The cohort showed a generally more favourable mortality experience than that of the general population; mortality deficits were observed for all causes of death combined, all heart diseases combined, nonmalignant respiratory disease and external causes. Mortality excesses were found for bone cancer, acute lymphocytic leukaemia, and benign/unspecified neoplasms. However, none of these diseases demonstrated an exposure-response relationship with length of employment. Analyses by sex, race, length of employment and pay status were also performed.
