Potential parental exposure to pesticides and limb reduction defects.
The goal of the study was to examine the effects of the potential pesticide exposure of parents on the risk of limb reduction defects in their offspring.
A case-referent study was conducted utilizing New York State Congenital Malformation Register data.
Persons with limb reduction defects and referents were compared in terms of parental occupations and residence counties.
Parental occupations and industries reported on birth certificates were qualitatively rated by industrial hygienists to estimate potential pesticide (list four groups) exposures.
Residential exposures were estimated from agricultural census data according to county of residence.
