Abstract In a retrospective study of 311 male workers in an alkaline battery factory, the relationship between exposure to cadmium oxide and hypertension has been investigated. Blood pressure measurements, taken by the same physician, were available for a 30-yr period. When age-matched groups of hypertensive and normotensive workers were compared, employment time was significantly longer (P = .0109) in the hypertensive group. This indicates a possible relationship between exposure to cadmium oxide and the development of hypertension.
