Introduction: rationale for an update. Reproductive hazards

Gold EB, Lasley BL, Schenker MB

Occup Med. 1994. 9(3):363-72.

More than 104,000 chemical and physical agents have been identified in the workplace, but the effects on reproduction of at least 95% of them have not been assessed. Here, the editors of this volume describe changing demographics in the workplace, which underscore the need for evaluating potential hazards to reproduction. They also review findings regarding occupational reproductive hazards to men and women that have been reported over the past decade.
