Vainio, Harri, Pearce, Neil E., Matos, Elena


Cancers due to exposure in the workplace in developing countries have received little attention, bacause of the overridig porblems in those regions of communicable disease, poverty, malnutrition, and vulnerability to natural disasters and war. This book shows, however, that the global process of industrialisation is resulting in increased exposures to occupational carcinogens in developing countries, through unsafe technology, bad working conditions, ineffectivelegislation onoccupational safety and health and inadequate supervision.This book brings together all the available published data on occupational cancer in developing countries and presents the results of a survey carried out by the IARC on common occupational exposures and measures that have been taken to control them. The overview indicates where information is lacking on the health effects of agents used in developing countries, many of which are banned or restricted elsewhere.Vainio, Harri is the author of 'Occupational Cancer in Developing Countries' with ISBN 9789283221296 and ISBN 928322129X.
