Title Risk of stillbirth from occupational and residential exposures
Bibliographic information July 1997, Vol.54, No.7, p.511-518. Illus. 31 ref.
Abstract Data on stillbirths and neonatal deaths from 10 counties in California, USA, were analysed. Occupational exposure to pesticides during the first two months of gestation was positively associated with stillbirths due to congenital anomalies. Pesticide exposure during the first and second trimesters was associated with stillbirths due to all causes of death and with stillbirths due to complications of the placenta, cord and membranes. Occupational exposure to video display terminals in the third trimester had a modest inverse association with stillbirths. Topics: case-control study; CRT display terminals; embryotoxic effects; expectant mothers; neighbourhood populations; parental exposure; pesticides.
