This review attempts to estimate the contribution of different known work-related causes of lung cancer in the Norwegian male population in order to predict the potential of prevention of work-related cases.
The presented estimates are based on data from epidemiologic studies made in Norway, but may be of significance for other countries with a similar work-force structure.
Over the past decade asbestos-related lung cancer appears to have contributed about two-thirds of the lung cancers that have been related to work exposure in Norway, for example, possibly 125-175 of the 1100 cases that occurred among Norwegian men in 1987.
