Traduction en anglais : Carcinogenic materials in woodworking.
Wood dusts should can cause nasal adeno carcinoma.
In Germany altogether 41 persons/year have fallen ill at nasal adeno carcinoma on the average from 1980 to 1989.
The ratio of persons fallen ill who are not employed in woodworking is about double as large as those in woodworking.
The carcinogenic effect of genuine wood dust is not proven up to now.
Wood components are not carcinogenic.
The conjecture of a mixed exposition is obvious first of all.
From present view the surface coating with liquid materials could be one of the multiple causes.
Because of the slight number of the persons fallen ill the conjecture of a personal disposition is very obvious as multiple cause.
This problem was not considered until today.
The medium duration of action at the fallen ill lies on about 25 years, the medium latent period on about 40 years.
Under consideration of these very large periods it is senseless, to cover today goal-oriented preventive measures to possibly then available causes, because in woodworking processes, attendant materials and dust extraction are today others as before decades.
Goal-oriented preventive measures is facilitated, if these facts are considered in scientific and official regulations.
