Few epidemiologic studies have explored risk factors for bone tumors in children, and the role of environmental factors needs to be analyzed. The objective of this study was to ascertain the association between residential proximity to industrial plants and urban areas and risk of bone tumors in children, taking into account industrial groups and toxic pollutants released. Findings support the need for more detailed exposure assessment of certain toxics released by these facilities.
