Título Cancer risks among agricultural workers in Sweden
Información bibliográfica Department of Cancer Epidemiology, Radiumhemmet, Karolinska Hospital, S-104 01 Stockholm, Sweden, 1986. 150p. Illus. 191 ref.
Resumen This study analyses the cancer risks and the time-related trends in risks among these workers. Although agricultural workers had a lower cancer risk than other workers, there were increased relative risks for cancers of the liver, prostate and other male genital and urinary organs, for lip cancer, malignant melanoma and skin carcinomas of the head/neck region, myeloma and stomach cancer. The 6 papers on which the study was based are reproduced.
