Allergic morbidity in children of female workers at a tyre factory

Working conditions and morbidity in tyre female workers and allergic morbidity in their children were studied. The incidence of allergic diseases in the children of tyre female workers constantly subject to poor working conditions was ascertained to be higher than in those of workers unengaged in noxious industry. The higher incidence of allergic diseases in the study group children may be regarded as a result of the mediated effect of deleterious maternal industrial factors on a baby’s health, mainly by developing atopic diseases. This is due to the early manifestation and more severe course of allergic diseases.
