Cancer mortality in cohorts of workers in the European rubber manufacturing industry first employed since 1975.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Increased cancer risk has been reported among workers in the rubber manufacturing industry employed before the 1960s. It is unclear whether risk remains increased among workers hired subsequently. The present study focused on risk of cancer mortality for rubber workers first employed since 1975 in 64 factories.
