Título The Canadian Labour Force Ten Percent Sample Study - Cancer mortality among men, 1965-1979
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1993, Vol.35, No.4, p.408-414. 23 ref.
Resumen The mortality experience of 415,309 men in the Canadian Labour Force 10% Sample Study was updated to the end of 1979. Analysis of 9,739 deaths from cancer between 1965 and 1979 (274 occupations, 294 industries and 33 types of cancer) revealed 243 associations. On the criteria of strength of association, dose-response, and consistency, 23 associations were of particular interest. Of these associations, four seemed most likely to be caused by excess smoking and/or alcohol consumption. A further seven had support in terms of biological plausibility and/or other studies in the literature. The other associations may well have arisen by chance given the many comparisons made in this study.
