||1996, Vol.18, No.2, p.218-234. 231 ref.
||Epidemiologic evidence concerning the role of occupational exposures in gastric cancer aetiology is reviewed. Workplace exposures studied include asbestos, coal dust, nitrogen oxides, mineral and metal dusts, wood dust, ionizing radiation, agricultural exposures (pesticides, fertilizers), nitrosamines, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and ethylene oxide. The review does not suggest a strong role for any specific gastric carcinogen; various carcinogenic exposures which also affect other organs may contribute to gastric carcinogenesis. Occupational exposures most likely act together with numerous non-occupational risk factors at various stages of gastric cancer development.
