Abstract
A study was made of 5,189 white males employed in metal machining jobs for at least one year in a particular plant between 1938 and 1967. The men were exposed to various insoluble, soluble, and synthetic cutting fluids. Cause-specific mortality rates were compared to the total U.S. white male population. Observed and expected deaths and standardized mortality ratios are given by cause of death and by age. No unusual mortality from respiratory cancer and only slightly higher mortality from digestive cancer were noted in the study.
