Título Smoking patterns of motor vehicle industry workers and their impact on lung cancer mortality rates
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1983, Vol.25, No.9, p.661-667. 19 ref.
Resumen Follow-up of a recent mortality study in which automotive workers were found to have an excess of approx. 30% in lung cancer over the general population. When differences in smoking habits are considered, the proportionate mortality ratios for lung cancer in white male automotive workers fall from 1.3 to approx. 1.1. Smoking habits can affect mortality rates for lung cancer when the smoking habits of the population studied differ from that of the general population. At least part of the excess in lung cancer mortality in automotive workers may be explained by smoking.
