Cancer mortality in workers exposed to phenoxy herbicides, chlorophenols, and dioxins. An expanded and updated international cohort study.
TLDR
Exposure to herbicides contaminated with TCDD and higher chlorinated dioxins may be associated with a small increase in overall cancer risk and in risk for specific cancers. Expand
Ambient air pollution and low birthweight: a European cohort study (ESCAPE).
TLDR
Exposure to ambient air pollutants and traffic during pregnancy is associated with restricted fetal growth and a substantial proportion of cases of low birthweight at term could be prevented in Europe if urban air pollution was reduced. Expand
Occupational exposure to carcinogens in the European Union
TLDR
These preliminary estimates indicate that in the early 1990s, a substantial proportion of workers in the EU were exposed to carcinogens, including IARC group 1 carcinogens. Expand
Occupational asthma in Europe and other industrialised areas: a population-based study
TLDR
The prevalence of occupational asthma in women and in specific occupations has been underestimated and the most consistent results across countries were shown for farmers and cleaners. Expand
Socioeconomic differences in cancer incidence and mortality.
TLDR
Excesses in high female socioeconomic strata were seen in most populations for cancers of the colon, breast and ovary and for skin melanoma, while in the two Latin American populations for which data were available, lung cancer was more frequent in higher social strata. Expand
Thyroid dysfunction and autoantibodies in early pregnancy are associated with increased risk of gestational diabetes and adverse birth outcomes.
TLDR
High TSH levels and thyroid autoimmunity in early pregnancy may detrimentally affect pregnancy and birth outcomes. Expand
The risk profile of childhood leukaemia in Greece: a nationwide case-control study.
TLDR
The findings of this study are interpreted as being compatible with acute childhood leukaemia being linked with delayed development of herd immunity to fairly common infectious agents, in conjunction with accelerated perinatal and early post-natal growth. Expand
NAT2 slow acetylation, GSTM1 null genotype, and risk of bladder cancer: results from the Spanish Bladder Cancer Study and meta-analyses
TLDR
The GSTM1 null genotypes increases the overall risk of bladder cancer, and the NAT2 slow-acetylator genotype increases risk particularly among cigarette smokers, providing compelling evidence for the role of common polymorphisms in the aetiology of cancer. Expand
Occupation and bladder cancer among men in Western Europe
TLDR
Metal workers, machinists, transport equipment operators and miners are among the major occupations contributing to occupational bladder cancer in men in Western Europe, with an increased risk for exposure to PAHs. Expand
What’s in the Pool? A Comprehensive Identification of Disinfection By-products and Assessment of Mutagenicity of Chlorinated and Brominated Swimming Pool Water
TLDR
This study identified many new DBPs not identified previously in swimming pool or drinking water and found that swimming pool waters are as mutagenic as typical drinking waters. Expand
