Título Gastric cancer in coal miners: Some hypotheses for investigation
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1982, Vol.32, No.2, p.73-81. 56 ref.
Resumen A series of hypothesis are proposed to explain the evidence of an elevated risk of gastric cancer in US coal miners. These hypotheses range from direct occupational links including, coal mine and other dust exposure to darkness, soil and moisture, to causes related to social class, and lifestyle including exposure to raw tobacco juice and nitroso amines, a lower than normal ingestion of antioxidants, and a lag effect compared to national trends. These hypotheses and others can form the basis of epidemiologic studies to determine the most probable reason for excess risk.
