Using occupational data for over 2000 colon cancer cases diagnosed between 1980 and 1984 in Shanghai, and employment information from the 1982 census for the Shanghai population, standardized incidence ratios (SIR) were computed for occupational groups classified by job types and physical activity levels.
Men employed in occupations with low physical activity levels had modest but significantly elevated risks of colon cancer.
SIR for jobs with low activity based on sitting time was 121 (95% confidence interval, CI:108-135) and based on energy expenditure was 126 (95% CI: 115-138).
