The aim of this study was to examine whether work with a video display terminal and exposure to the magnetic fields of video display terminals are related to spontaneous abortion.
The study was conducted among women employed as bank clerks and clerical workers in three companies in Finland.
The cases (191 spontaneous abortions) and controls (394 births) were identified from Finnish medical registers for the years 1975-1985.
Use of video display terminals was defined using the workers'own reports and information provided by the companies.
The assessment of exposure to the magnetic fields was based on measurements of the fields of video display terminals.
