Cancer incidence in Stockholm firefighters 1958–2012: an updated cohort study

Objectives Previous studies on firefighters indicate an increased risk of cancer although findings regarding which cancer sites are in excess have been inconsistent. The aim of this study was to investigate the cancer incidence among Swedish firefighters. Methods This updated cohort study included 1080 men who worked at least 1 year as a firefighter in the city of Stockholm...

Occupational exposure to diesel motor exhaust and risk of lung cancer by histological subtype: a population-based case–control study in Swedish men

We investigated occupational exposure to diesel motor exhaust (DME) and the risk of lung cancer by histological subtype among men, using elemental carbon (EC) as a marker of DME exposure. 993 cases and 2359 controls frequency-matched on age and year of study inclusion were analyzed by unconditional logistic regression in this Swedish case–control study. Work and smoking histories...

Chimney sweeps in Sweden: a questionnaire-based assessment of long-term changes in work conditions, and current eye and airway symptoms

Objectives To explore chimney sweeping work tasks, chimney sweeps’ use of protective equipment, and type of fuel used by clients, over time. Further, to assess work-relatedness of current eye and airway symptoms. Methods In a cross-sectional study in 2011, male Swedish chimney sweeps (n = 483; age 21–69 years) answered a questionnaire about their occupational history and eye and...

A Job-Exposure Matrix for Occupational Noise: Development and Validation

Objective: To develop a job-exposure matrix (JEM) for occupational noise in Sweden and to estimate its validity.

Exposure to Particles, Elemental Carbon and Nitrogen Dioxide in Workers Exposed to Motor Exhaust

Objectives: The main aim of this study was to investigate the personal exposure to diesel and petrol exhaust fumes in occupations when exposure is prevalent and/or high. We also investigated the correlation between the five particle fractions [particles with an aerodynamic diameter <1 μm (PM1), particles with an aerodynamic diameter <2.5 μm (PM2.5), particles in size 0.1–10 μm...

Socio-economic class, rurality and risk of cutaneous melanoma by site and gender in Sweden

Background Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is a cancer usually associated with high socio-economic level in the literature. Few studies have, however, assessed this relationship by gender and site or the association between CM and rurality. Methods A major-sized historical occupational Swedish cohort comprising 2,992,166 workers was used to estimate relative risk of cutaneous melanoma...

Occupational Exposure to Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields and Mortality from Cardiovascular Disease

The authors evaluated the relation between occupational exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields and mortality from cardiovascular diseases. The study was based on 27,790 subjects from the Swedish Twin Registry. Exposure to ELF magnetic fields was assessed by linking occupation reported in 1967 or 1973 to a job exposure matrix. Four levels of exposure were...
