Inorganic particles in human tissues and their association with neoplastic disease

Environmental Health Perspectives

Abstract

An increased gastrointestinal cancer risk is associated with occupational exposure to asbestos fiber. Examination of tissues obtained from extrapulmonary organs of exposed workmen demonstrates the presence of asbestos fibers and bodies. The amount of fiber present in these tissues is ma...read more
