||Occupational risk factors and reproductive health of women
||Dec. 2006, Vol.56, No.8, p.521-531. Illus. 100 ref.
||This literature review summarizes recent epidemiologic evidence on the relationship between occupational exposures and negative reproductive outcome among women workers. The studies examined include those published in the international scientific literature since 1990 identified through the search of relevant data banks using selected keywords. There is sufficient evidence is sufficient to warrant the maximum protection of pregnant women from exposure to several occupational risk factors, including anaesthetic gases, antineoplastic drugs, heavy metals, solvents, heavy physical work and irregular work schedules. For other work risks, such as exposure to non-ionizing radiation and psychosocial work stress, the evidence is often suggestive but not conclusive.
