||Analysis of respiratory mortality data in France collected by a European Community working group and comparison of findings in urban and rural communities. There was excess acute respiratory mortality among male and female agricultural workers; this confirmed the existence of this specific risk among agricultural workers. Further studies will be needed to precisely identify the environmental factors specific to farmwork to which these agricultural workers are exposed.
