The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between exposure to mutagenic drinking water and cancers of the gastrointestinal and urinary tract.
Past exposure to drinking water mutagenicity was assessed in 56 Finnish municipalities for the years 1955 and 1970.
The cases of bladder, kidney, stomach, colon, and rectum cancers were derived from two periods (1967 to 1976 and 1977 to 1986).
Age, sex, social class, urban living, and time period were taken into account in the Poisson regression analysis.
Statistically significant exposure-response association was observed between exposure and incidence of bladder, kidney, and stomach cancers.
