  1. Farming and prostate cancer mortality.

    Article - En anglais

    Although farmers appear to be at an increased risk of prostate cancer, the specific exposures which produce the excess risk remain unexplained.

    This study was based on a retrospectively assembled cohort of male Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, Canada, farmers age 45 years or older identified in the 1971 Canadian censuses of population and agriculture.

    The cohort was linked to the Canadian National Mortality Database using an iterative computer record linkage system for the period June 1971 to the end of 1987.

    A total of 1, 148 prostate cancer deaths and 2,213,478 person-years were observed.
