||Residential and occupational exposure to sunlight and mortality from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: Composite (threefold) case-control study
||May 1997, Vol.314, No.7092, p.1451-1455. 28 ref.
||Death certificate data for cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, melanoma and skin cancer and associations with potential residential and occupational exposure to sunlight were investigated. Unlike non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, both melanoma and skin cancer were positively associated with residential sunlight exposure. Skin cancer was also slightly positively associated with occupational sunlight exposure. Findings do not support the hypothesis that sunlight exposure contributes to the rising rates of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
