Title Medications as risk factors for farm injury
Bibliographic information July 1996, Vol.28, No.4, p.453-462. 37 ref.
Abstract In a questionnaire survey of 136 people with a farm injury and 581 controls without injury, significant increases in risk of injury were associated with regular use of stomach remedies or laxatives by males, and regular use of heart or circulatory medications by men over the age of 45. The identified associations remained after adjustment for age, co-morbidity, farm acreage, education, income, alcohol consumption and tobacco use. Possible explanations for the associations are discussed.
