Chemical Exposure at Work

You hate to read news like this, but according to new research workers exposed to some chemicals may have an increased risk of stomach cancer. More proof that it’s hard to make a living in this world. Check out The Cancer Blog:
An article recently published in the International Journal of Cancer says that airborne exposure to some occupational carcinogens appears to increase the risk of noncardia gastric cancer among men.

Noncardia gastric cancer refers to cancer that is in the middle or lower part of the stomach. Researchers from Sweden recently conducted a clinical study to evaluate potential occupational airborne exposures that may be associated with the risk of developing noncardia gastric cancer. This study included over 256,000 men with 200 different jobs.
