Cancer Mortality and Incidence in Cement Industry

2011-9-1  The low stomach cancer SMR might come from the healthy worker effect. However, the discrepancy between stomach cancer mortality and incidence represents limited evidence of the association between cement dust exposure and stomach cancer. The mechanism of the carcinogenic effect of cement dust to the stomach remains unclear.

2011-9-30  Cancer mortality and incidence were identified by the national death registry during 1992-2007 and the cancer registry during 1988-2005. The entry point of the cohort was Jan 1, 1992 for cancer mortality and Jan 1, 1988 for cancer incidence, or the date the worker began working at his company if the worker entered after those years.

Cancer Mortality and Incidence in Cement Industry

2017-2-6  few studies reported that the rate of colon cancer was higher in cement workers due to the inhalation of cement dust [7,8]. Notably, right side colon cancer (ascending colon) is reported more frequently, because the transit time of the right colon is longer than that of the left colon, which means longer contact with Cr6+. In our study, however, there were no sig-nificantly increased risks of colon or rectal cancers. Our study has a few limitations. First, we could not obtain data on confounding factors, such as cigarette smoking and Helicobacter pylori infection, which is known as a risk factor of stomach cancer. For example, smoking is a well-known major risk factor for lung cancer and, without controlling for smoking rates, the resultant cancer risks could be distorted. Thus, if the smoking rate of cement workers were much lower than that of the general male population, SMR or SIR would show low risks of lung cancer
