SummarySpontaneous abortions were analyzed in an industrial community in Finland in relation to the occupation of women and their husbands, and to the level of air pollution in the family's residential area. Information on abortions and births was obtained from the hospital discharge register; information on the women and their families was obtained from the files of the population and housing census. Women who were employed in rayon textile jobs and paper products jobs had an increased rate (P… Expand
Spontaneous Abortion as Risk Indicator in Metal Exposure
TLDR
A nation-wide hospital discharge register is used to retrieve cases of spontaneous abortion and three study schemes are presented in the application of the spontaneous abortion register in relation to metal work and exposure to metals. Expand
Dust and chemical exposures, and miscarriage risk among women textile workers in Shanghai, China
TLDR
Occupational exposure to synthetic fibres may cause miscarriages, and this possibility should be the subject of further investigation. Expand
Seasonal ambient air pollution correlates strongly with spontaneous abortion in Mongolia
TLDR
Alarmingly strong statistical correlations between ambient air pollutants and spontaneous abortion are identified in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, indicating a strong correlation between air pollution and decreased fetal wellbeing. Expand
Residential Exposure to Traffic and Spontaneous Abortion
TLDR
In this cohort, living within 50 m of a road with AADT of 15,200 or more was significantly associated with SAB among African Americans and nonsmokers. Expand
Occupational, Environmental and Lifestyle Factors Associated With Spontaneous Abortion
TLDR
The existing data support the hypothesis that, in general, working women have a higher risk of undesirable reproductive outcomes, and there is a need to educate the childbearing women to avoid exposure to the known or suspected risk factors and their employers to take measures to reduce the toxicant levels in workplace. Expand
Relationships between mild PM10 and ozone urban air levels and spontaneous abortion: clues for primary prevention
TLDR
SAB occurrence is affected by PM10 (particularly if industrial areas are present) and ozone concentrations, also at levels below the legal limits, thus, SAB might be considered, at least in part, a preventable condition. Expand
Acute effects of air pollutants on spontaneous pregnancy loss: a case-crossover study.
TLDR
It was found that short-term exposure to elevated levels of air pollutants was associated with higher risk for spontaneous pregnancy loss. Expand
Air pollution exposure during pregnancy and spontaneous abortion and stillbirth

TLDR
Exposure to air pollutants such as particulate matter, carbon monoxide and cooking smoke may be associated with higher risk for stillbirth and spontaneous abortion and further research is warranted to better understand the relationship between air pollution exposure and pregnancy loss. Expand
Environmental pollution and delivery outcome in southern Sweden: a study with central registries
TLDR
Environmental pollution in this county in southern Sweden does not seem to be a major determinant of delivery outcome, and neither air nor ground pollution affected the odds ratios for short gestation or low birthweight. Expand
Traffic-related Air Pollution and Pregnancy Loss
TLDR
The observed results suggest that higher traffic-related air pollution levels are associated with pregnancy loss, with strongest estimates between the 10th and 20th gestational weeks. Expand

Spontaneous abortions among women employed in the metal industry in Finland
TLDR
Both the rate and the ratio were significantly increased upon joining the Union as analyzed from an agestandardized material and an exposure to solder fumes was suggested to explain the increased risk. Expand
Spontaneous abortions by occupation and social class in Finland.
TLDR
The results suggest that socio-economic factors contribute to the rate of spontaneous abortions analogous to their known adverse effects on pre-term birth, birth weight and perinatal mortality. Expand
Spontaneous abortions among female chemical workers in Finland
TLDR
Spontaneous abortions were analyzed among Finnish chemical workers in 1973–1976, and the proportion of spontaneous abortions was significantly higher than the respective proportions among all Finnish women. Expand
GENETIC RISKS OF VINYL CHLORIDE
A study of pregnancy outcome among wives of workers exposed to vinyl-chloride monomer (V.C.M.) indicated that, in comparison with controls, there was a significant excess fetal loss in the groupExpand
Cigarette smoking during pregnancy and the occurrence of spontaneous abortion and congenital abnormality.
TLDR
A statistically significant increase in risk associated with maternal cigarette smoking was found for spontaneous abortions and congenital abnormalities in professional women in medicine, after controlling for interfering variables. Expand
Smoking: A Risk Factor for Spontaneous Abortion
TLDR
It is concluded that smoking during pregnancy is a risk factor for spontaneous abortion. Expand
ALCOHOL, SMOKING, AND INCIDENCE OF SPONTANEOUS ABORTIONS IN THE FIRST AND SECOND TRIMESTER
TLDR
The increased risk of second-trimester miscarriage in drinkers was not explained by age, parity, race, marital status, smoking, or the number of previous spontaneous or induced abortions, Thus alcohol may harm human fetuses not only when it is abused but also when taken in moderation. Expand
DRINKING DURING PREGNANCY AND SPONTANEOUS ABORTION
TLDR
It is estimated that more than 1/4 of pregnant women drinking twice a week or more are likely to abort, compared with about 14% among women who drink less often, and acute fetal poisoning seems the most likely, although chronic poisoning is also possible. Expand
Pregnancy outcome for women working in laboratories in some of the pharmaceutical industries in Sweden.
TLDR
Subdivision into two types of laboratory work, "chemical" and "other," revealed a significant difference, with an increased perinatal death rate and an increased rate of major malformations in the chemical group. Expand

TLDR
It is essential in investigating the role of occupational factors that other environmental and behavioral factors with major effects on pregnancy outcome be accounted for, including smoking, alcohol, and drug exposures. Expand
