A study published on NIH site draws a correlation between multiple myeloma and chemical exposure (e.g., solvents, benzene). Apparently, the researchers looked at a spectrum of studies, occupations and locations to document the etiology of mulitple myeloma and various jobs.
The study notes, in particular, that “people employed as machine operators and tenders or in the machinery, missile, or auto repair industries may be exposed to a variety of chemicals that may be carcinogenic, such as solvents, cutting oils, metal dusts, and metal fumes” that may be a contributing factor to mulitple myeloma (form of blood disease e.g., leukemia).
