Título Occupational influences on reproduction: A review of recent literature
Información bibliográfica July 1987, Vol.29, No.7, p.584-591. Bibl. 1 ref.
Resumen There has been great interest in reproductive impairment, estimated to affect 30% of US couples, but the proportion of such problems resulting from occupational exposures remains unknown. This interest has spawned numerous papers that investigate the relation between occupation and reproduction. Updating a previous review, a comprehensive listing is provided of the literature published between 1981 and 1985. The review reveals common weaknesses, including inadequate sample size and poor response rates, potential for selection bias, inadequate attention to potentially confounding factors, and poor characterisation of exposure.
