Prévalences de l’exposition des viticulteurs aux pesticides arsenicaux entre 1979 et 2001
L'évaluation rétrospective des expositions aux pesticides des travailleurs agricoles est une démarche nécessaire pour comprendre et établir des liens entre leurs activités tout le long de leur carrière et de potentielles pathologies graves telles les cancers ou les maladies neurodégénératives. Les outils fiables soutenus par une méthodologie précise et structurée sont peu nombreux. L'arsenic inorganique est considéré comme un cancérogène avéré pour l'homme...
Australian Work Exposures Study (AWES) - Carcinogen Exposures Agricultural Industry
A random, population-based sample of 5528 Australian workers participated in the Australian Work Exposure Study (AWES). Workers answered questions about the tasks they completed and the controls used at work. Based on their responses to those questions, the likelihood of exposure to 38 known or suspected carcinogens was estimated. The AWES focused on the most common tasks performed at work. Workers were not asked directly about their exposures to carcinogens and exposure levels were not measured in the workplace. This report describes the responses provided by 156 AWES participants categorised...
Prostate cancer risk among French farmers in the AGRICAN cohort
Objectives: Prostate cancer is one of the most frequent cancers among men worldwide. Its etiology is largely unknown, but an increased risk has been repeatedly observed among farmers. Our aim was to identify occupational risk factors for prostate cancer among farmers in the prospective cohort study AGRICAN. Methods: Data on lifetime agricultural exposures (type of crops, livestock and tasks including pesticide use, re-entry and harvesting) were collected from the enrolment questionnaire. During the period from enrolment (2005–2007) to 31 December 2009, 1672 incident prostate cancers were...
The Pesticide Users Health Study - An analysis of cancer incidence (1987-2004)
The Pesticide Users Health Study (PUHS) consists of pesticide users certified under the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 (COPR). This report presents cancer incidence experienced by pesticide users in the PUHS, and compares this to the rates observed in the national population. Altogether, there were 1,720 registered cancers among 62,960 pesticide users between 1987 and 2004. Men in the PUHS had reduced overall cancer incidence compared to the national population. In particular, incidence of cancer of the lip, oral cavity & pharynx, cancer of the digestive organs, cancer of the respiratory...
Study finds breast cancer link in industrial, trade sectors
A new study published November 19, 2012 in the Environmental Health Journal shows that a number of blue-collar jobs with exposure to chemicals may be increasing some women’s risk for breast cancer. The case control study selected 1,005 women with breast cancer and another 1,147 without the disease. Researchers found that women who worked in jobs classified as “highly exposed” for a decade or more increased their breast cancer risk by 42 per cent. Source :
Cancer and Lung Disease in Relation to Sawfiling and Endotoxin Exposure among Sawmill Workers
Exposure to hard metal and endotoxin may lead to adverse health effects in sawfilers and sawmill workers. This study examined the association between occupational exposure to these substances and the risk of lung disease and cancer. Subjects from a previous cohort study of BC sawmill workers were linked to information from hospital records and cancer registries. Employment as a sawfiler was found to be associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer. Workers exposed to endotoxin showed a decreased risk of lung cancer, a finding which replicated the results of previous research. Source :...
Cancer et travail en agriculture
L'Institut national de médecine agricole (INMA) organisait le 16 septembre, à Tours, un colloque intitulé "Cancer et travail en agriculture", un thème qui suscite bien des questionnements, sur lequel des données sont disponibles mais encore incomplètes. Le symposium de l'INMA a permis à de nombreux experts de faire le point sur les travaux en cours. Source :
Occupational exposure to organic dusts and cancer among Finnish workers
Organic dusts of vegetable, animal or microbial origin are major causes of occupational diseases of the respiratory tract. There is inconclusive evidence concerning the risk of cancer from organic dusts, and only limited knowledge or inhalatory exposure to some organic dusts and cancer, e.g., bacteria and moulds. The food industry and agriculture have significant occupational organic dust exposure.
