In 1974, Workmen's Accident Compensation Section of Tokyo Labour Standard Bureau asked one of the authors whether the lung cancer of a worker who had worked in a chemical plant was occupational or not, because there had been two dead cases of lung cancer in the past in this plant. This plant had produced benzoyl chloride from 1954 to 1972 and morpholine disulfite and forced plastics after 1972. The size of the plant was small, the number of workers being usually about 20.
