  1. Adult leukemia risk and personal appliance use : a preliminary study.

    Article - En anglais

    The hypothesis that use of personal electric appliances may be associated with increased risk of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia in adults was tested using interview data from a previously completed case-control study of 114 cases and 133 controls conducted between 1981 and 1984.

    Cases were obtained from a population-based cancer registry in western Washington state, and controls were obtained from the same area by random digit dialing.

    Of 32 electrical home appliances for which data on use were available for adult acute nonlymphocytic leukemia cases and controls, three motor-driven personal appliances (electric razors, hair dryers, and massage units) were selected a priori because their use represents exposure to higher peak magnetic fields than that from most other home appliances.
