A comment on an earlier study of a proposed association between occupational exposure to acrylamide and, cancer.
A 10-year follow-up study was reported in 1999 Occupational and Environmental Medicine Vol.56, p 181 to 190. The main conclusion of the original report was that there was no significant long-term cancer risk. The letter (here) suggests the original study was severely flawed.
Our reading of the criticism of the original work leads us to believe that the original conclusion was reasonably safe. However, in our view, there is likely to be further work, of a higher standard. The Hagmar report identifies a cohort of people who could be usefully followed up for 20 years.
