Abstract
We read the article by Berrino et al. with great interest. In this well-designed and interesting population-based case-control study, Berrino et al. evaluated the relationship of laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers with specific occupational exposures and found excess risk with solvent exposure for both. Overall, results, except solvent exposure, were consistent with our previous observation on occupational exposures and laryngeal cancer. We observed a dose-response relationship with silica, cotton dust exposures, as well as diesel exhaust exposure.
