||Physical activity, physical exertion, and miscarriage risk in women textile workers in Shanghai, China

||Strenuous occupational physical activity and physical demands may be risk factors for adverse reproductive outcomes. This retrospective study in the Shanghai, China, textile industry collected women's self-reported reproductive history. Occupational physical activity was assessed from an industry-specific job-exposure matrix. Data were subjected to multivariate logistic regression analyses. Compared with women employed in sedentary jobs, a reduced risk of miscarriage was found for women working in jobs with either light (odds ratio (OR) 0.18) or medium (OR 0.24) physical activity during the first pregnancy and over all pregnancies (light OR 0.32; medium OR 0.43). However frequent crouching was associated with elevated risks (OR 1.82).
