A retrospective cohort mortality study was conducted among 7814 white shoe manufacturing workers followed from 1940 through 1982.
The workers were potentially exposed to solvents (including toluene) and solvent-based adhesives.
Benzene may have been present as an impurity of toluene.
Mortality due to leukemia and aleukemia was not statistically significantly elevated.
Statistically significant excess mortality due to cancer of the trachea, bronchus and lung was observed in the total cohort [standardized mortality ratio (SMR) 147, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 120-180] and showed a statistically significant trend in standardized relative risk with increasing potential latency, but not with increasing duration of employment.
