Historical Patterns of Pesticide Epidemiology Research From 1945 to 1988

  • Hersh, Carol B.;
  • Hodder, Richard A.;
  • Levine, Robert S.


Review of four questions faced by pesticide epidemiologists from 1945 to 1988 shows a transition from maternal to paternal concerns in Agent Orange reproductive research, greater emphasis on accidents than suicide in acute-injury research, and an apparent focus away from diagnoses specific to women in both occupational mortality and cancer research. Further study of such historical research trends might assist both causal inference and the ethical evaluation of epidemiologic research.
