Abstract
Results of an epidemiologic study show significantly increased mortality due to total malignancies, lung cancer, and prostatic cancer among cadmium (7440439) smelter workers. The findings of previous occupational studies are confirmed, and cadmium exposure is strongly implicated as a cause of certain types of malignant disease. In light of the ubiquitous nature of cadmium in the environment, further research and precautionary efforts to reduce occupational and general environmental exposures to cadmium and cadmium compounds are indicated.
