From 1970 to 1980, mortality from cancer of the lung and stomach was analyzed in a town with asbestos deposits and in a town with asbestos processing. The populations of the entire country, the province, the district, and of all communities of the same size and agricultural index were used as references. In the town with asbestos contamination of air and water from natural tremolite deposits and an endemic occurrence of pleural plaques, no increased risk for lung or stomach cancer was found. In the town with asbestos cement production lung cancer rates were lower in males and higher in females, and stomach cancer rates were lower than expected. No significant differences could be attributed to environmental asbestos exposure.
