Title Respiratory deaths in agricultural and non-agricultural workers in France from 1970 to 1974
Original title MortalitÚ par maladies respiratoires chez les travailleurs en milieu agricole et non agricole en France de 1970 Ó 1974 [in French]
Bibliographic information 1983, Vol.11, No.1, p.47-55. 17 ref.
Abstract 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.
