Occupational Exposures Tied to ALS Risk

FRIDAY, Sept. 23, 2022 (HealthDay News) -- Occupational exposures may increase the risk for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), according to a study recently published in the International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health.

Stephen A. Goutman, M.D., from University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and colleagues identified occupational exposures that are associated with a higher risk for ALS using both survey and standard occupational classification coding procedures. The analysis included 381 ALS and 272 control participants.
