||A survey of the outcome of 776 pregnancies among 418 nurses in 17 hospitals in Paris, France, during the period June 1987 and June 1989 revealed that the frequency of spontaneous abortions was significantly higher for nurses who worked in the operating room during pregnancy. It was also significantly higher for nurses exposed to a combination of anaesthetic gases, aqueous formaldehyde solution (Formol) and ionizing radiation during the first three months of pregnancy.
