Individual Study / Cancer in the Norwegian agricultural population

Cancer in the Norwegian agricultural population

Cancer in the Norwegian agricultural population

Initiatives -
To explore lip cancer (LC) associations with work environmental exposures in a record-linkage study of Norwegian farmers. We hypothesize immunosuppressive substances (e.g. mycotoxins, pesticides) to influence LC incidence. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.*
