||In a study of 262 workers in an offset printing plant, an increased cancer mortality was found after ten years of employment, mainly because of a high mortality from lung cancer and from oesophageal cancer. The increased cancer mortality was concentrated among pressman. Although based on small numbers, the findings suggest an increased risk of cancer among these workers which should be further investigated. Topics: cancer; cohort study; length of exposure; lung cancer; mortality; oesophageal carcinoma; offset printing; printing industry.
