Título Pesticide use and chronic bronchitis among farmers in the agricultural health survey
Información bibliográfica 2007, Vol.50, p.969-979. 44 ref.
Resumen This study evaluated the role played by pesticides as risk factors of chronic bronchitis, using data from the Agricultural Health Study on lifetime pesticide use among doctor-diagnosed cases of chronic bronchitis from 20,908 pesticide applicators. Chronic bronchitis was diagnosed after age of 19 in 654 farmers (3%). Eleven pesticides were significantly associated with chronic bronchitis, the highest odds ratio being found for heptachlor (OR 1.50). Increased prevalence for chronic bronchitis was also seen for individuals who had a history of a high pesticide exposure event (OR 1.85) and for those who also applied pesticides in off farm jobs (OR 1.40).
