  1. Video display terminals and the risk of spontaneous abortion.

    Article - En anglais

    The relation between spontaneous abortion and the use of video display terminals (VDTs) is of great public health concern.

    Previous investigators of this issue have reported inconsistent findings.


    To determine whether electromagnetic fields emitted by VDTs are associated with an increased risk of spontaneous abortion, a cohort of female telephone operators who used VDTs at work was compared with a cohort of operators who did not use VDTs.
