Blood samples were obtained from volunteers working in a Finnish iron foundry who were occupationally exposed to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and from control subjects not known to be occupationally exposed to this class of chemical carcinogens. Foundry workers were classified as belonging to high, medium or low exposure groups according to their exposure to airborne benzo[a]pyrene: high, greater than 0.2: medium, 0.05-0.2: low, less than 0.05 micrograms benzo[a]pyrene/m3 air… CONTINUE READING
