Abstract Cause of death and job histories were obtained for 1,766 of 2,027 hourly workers with at least 5 year's exposure to cutting fluids and abrasives in the manufacture of ball bearings. Statistically significant excesses of stomach cancer existed among white men with experience grinding in cutting fluids and pancreatic cancer among white men with grinding or machining experience. Stomach cancer excess increased with duration of grinding with statistically significant proportional mortality ratios from 3.4 to 4.2 among those with over 10 years' experience. Statistically significant associations were found between lung cancer in white men and work in forging, heat treat and related jobs; lymphopoietic cancer in tool and die workers; and stomach cancer among decendents of French Canadian origin.
