Introduction: The main risk factors for the development of respiratory disease have been largely established, however we still cannot predict which individuals will develop respiratory morbidity later in life. This study had two main goals: 1) to examine early working-life changes in respiratory health as risk factors for the development of asthma and bronchitis, and 2) to assess the utility of healthcare utilization data for longitudinal studies in respiratory epidemiology. Methods: A cohort… CONTINUE READING
