ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the multicentric study of Carel and colleagues on the effect of occupational exposure to asbestos to the risk of lung cancer in Eastern Europe and England. It states that the apparent difference between the relative risks due to asbestos between eastern Europe and Great Britain could be due to any several factors including differences in exposure levels for the same jobs, differences in types of asbestos used, among others.
