Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Exactly how cancer takes root in children remains much a mystery, despite broad investigations into the matter. Now a new study supports the idea that a fathers occupation just before conception may play a role [EHP 109:193?198]. More specifically, the chemicals he is exposed to on the job may affect his children?s health after birth, contributing to the development of nervous system tumors and, more rarely, leukemia?the two most common types of childhood cancer. The study, led by Maria Feychting of the Karolinksa Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, lends credence to the hypothesis that paternal occupational exposures may be important in the etiology of childhood cancer.
