Indeed an increased risk for breast cancer in professions that had a potentially higher exposure to these compounds. These include agriculture, plastic manufacturing, metal working, and even working in a bar or casino. What was also revealed in the findings was that women in lower socioeconomic strata had an increased risk, possibly due to the increased exposure the stems from lower-income manufacturing jobs.
It is difficult at this time to draw conclusions from the data because it is not known which compounds in paint are responsible for the increased risk, nor is it clear how levels of exposure can be measured and defined. Variations in a person's workload as well as the fact that paint composition has changed over the years further cloud the picture.
The current findings, however, are sufficient grounds to suggest that people who paint for a living run an occupational risk for the disease.
