The possible hazard of lung cancer among cooks was studied in a cohort of 1798 cooks who had retired from the Army Catering Corps and 1310 referents retired from the Royal Army Pay Corps.
During the follow-up from 1974 to 1989 the mortality of the referents was similar to that of the national population, apart from a moderate increase in lung cancer [standardized mortality ratio (SMR) 1.38]. Mortality from lung cancer among the cooks was significantly higher than among the national population [SMR 1.82, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.25-2.57], as was mortality from cancer of the large intestine (SMR 3.03), ischemic heart disease (SMR 1.42), cerebrovascular disease (SMR 2.05), and digestive disease (SMR 2.27).
