A water source component was included in a large population based case-control interview study of artificial sweetners. Relative risk from using chlorinated surface water sources is not elevated in the exposed groups, and there is no suggestion of a duration-response relationship, but an increasing risk of bladder cancer with duration of exposure to chlorinated surface water is observed among persons otherwise at lowest risk and is consistent across the sexes. Geographical differences in bladder cancer risk patterns suggest the possibility of water contaminants in agricultural areas of ground water contaminants in New Jersey.
