Abstract:
This mortality study extends the period of observation of an article published in 1988 1 of 5414 workers in Vermont granite sheds and quarries to assess whether previously reported reductions in silicosis and tuberculosis mortality were maintained. Differing levels of quartz exposure, which resulted in large differences in the mortality experience from silicosis, did not result in differences in lung cancer mortality. The results do not support the hypothesis that granite dust exposure has a causal association with lung cancer.
