Abstract

We used two methods to examine how lung cancer death rates vary with cumulative exposures to radiation and tobacco among U.S. uranium miners. We assumed that exposures act proportionately on age-specific death rates among nonsmokers who are unexposed to uranium. The two methods produced similar results when death rate ratios were taken to be the product of… (More)
