    Article - En anglais

    The role of environmental radiation in the etiology of birth defects, stillbirths, and other adverse outcomes of pregnancy was evaluated for 13,329 Navajos born at the Public Health Service/Indian Health Service Hospital in the Shiprock, NM, uranium mining area (1964-1981).

    More than 320 kinds of defective congenital conditions were abstracted from hospital records.

    Using a nested case-control design, families of 266 pairs of index and control births were interviewed.
