  1. Birthplace as a risk factor in motor neurone disease and Parkinson's disease.

    Article - En anglais

    A proportional mortality study was conducted to determine if state of birth is a risk factor associated with motor neurone disease (MND) and Parkinson's disease (PD) using US death certificate information for 1981.

    State of birth was used as a surrogate variable far location of early childhood environment.

    A gradient of risk by geographical area in the US was found for MND and PD.

    Cerebral vascular accident (CVA) deaths served as a comparison group.

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) deaths were analysed to validate the methods used.
