Occupational Exposure to Silica and Cancer Risk by Lorenzo Simonato, Terry L. Thomas, Rodolfo Saracci, A. C. Fletcher

This book provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on epidemiological studies on the relationship of silica dust inhalation to incidents of lung cancer. Though such exposures have long been linked to the respiratory disorder silicosis, the danger of cancer has been hard to document due to limited evidence. The present work gathers the most current information available, including efforts to identify groups of workers exposed to silica in the absence of other known carcinogens. It will be of interest to oncologists, occupational health personnel, epidemiologists, and specialists in respiratory disorders.
