||Cancer mortality in a cohort of United Kingdom steel foundry workers: 1946-85
||Feb. 1989, Vol.46, No.2, p.74-81. 19 ref.
||The mortality experienced by a cohort of 10,491 steel foundry workers in the United Kingdom during the period 1946-85 was investigated. These workers were all male operatives first employed in any one of the 10 participating foundries in 1946-65; all had worked in the inudstry for a minimum period of 1yr. Compared with the general population of England and Wales, statistically significant excesses relating to cancer mortality were found for cancer of the stomach (E = 77.4, O = 106, SMR = 137) and cancer of the lung (E = 229.2, O = 441, SMR = 147). A statistically significant deficit was found for cancer of the brain (E = 19.4, O = 10, SMR = 51). Involvement of occupational exposures was assessed by the method of regression models and life tables (RMLT). The RMLT analyses provided evidence of an occupational involvement in the risk of death from lung cancer from work in the foundry area or fettling shop, and weaker evidence of an occupational involvement in the risk of death from stomach cancer from work in the foundry area.
