    Article, Communication - En anglais

    International conference on women's health : occupation and cancer. Baltimore MD USA, 1993/11.

    Breast cancer incidence and mortality measured for the population of a major metropolitan center included 7368 cases and 235 7 deaths over 15 years, ascertained according to National Cancer Institute Surveillance, epidemiology, and End Results program procedures.

    Occupational risks were estimated with a census-based occupation coding system for cases and deaths, mean annual age-standardized rates, and age-truncated occupation allocation.

    Data (imitations include absence of population frequencies of pesonal risk factors for breast cancer occupation designation errors, lack of knowledge about chemical exposures in apparently high-risk occupations, and the possibility that the number of comparisons could produce significant differences by chance.

    Compared to community-wide reference incidence and mortality rates, significant excess breast cancer risks were identified for housewives, registered nurses, clinical laboratory technicians, schoolteachers, social workers, secretaries and typists, and meat wrappers and cutters.

    High incidence rates with unremarkable mortality rates were identified for dental hygienists, religious workers, electronic engineering technicians, authors and journalists, restaurant and bar manages, realty and insurance saleswomen, bank tellers and cashiers, telephone operators, canning and bottling workers, chemical and gas handles, and papemill workers.
