Hver tiende astma er arbeidsrelatert

En ny studie bekrefter hva som har vært kjent lenge. Hver tiende astma er arbeidsrelatert.

Studien er laget av Akademiske sjukehuset i Sverige og man har forsket i flere land. 13000 voksne kvinner og menn har deltatt i forskningen i Danmark, Estland, Finland, Island, Norge og Sverige. Sudien er blitt publisert i Annals of Occupational Medicine. Ingen av deltakerne hadde astma da studien startet. Studien pågikk over mange år og da den ble avsluttet hadde 429 av deltakerne utviklet astma.

Studien viste også at det var større risiko for å utvikle asthma i arbeidet om du blir utsatt for luftveiene irriterende og sensibiliserende kjemikalier. “Risikoemner” for yrkesmessig astma inkluderer såkalte isocyanater, epoksy akrylater og vaskemidler. Også peroner som arbeider med noen naturlige allergener og respiratoriske irritanter plantestoffer – for eksempel gartnere – hadde en økt risiko for å utvikle astma. Astma knyttet til faktorer i arbeid i voksen alder ser ut til å stor grad påvirke folk som ikke har vist tegn til noen allergier. Ifølge forskernes beregninger, arbeidsfaktorer ligger til grunn omtrent hvert syv nye tilfeller av astma blant menn og ca hver fjortende nye tilfeller av astma blant kvinner.

Renholdspersonale, spray malere, frisører og rørleggere er noen grupper av de grupper som er særlig sårbare for slike yrkesastma.

Every tenth asthma is work related

A new study confirms what has long been known. Every tenth asthma is work related.

The study is made of the Academic Hospital in Sweden and it has been investigated in several countries. 13,000 adult women and men participated in the research in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Sudie’s been published in the Annals of Occupational Medicine. None of the participants had asthma when the study began. The study took place over many years and when it was completed 429 participants had developed asthma.

The study also showed that there was a greater risk of developing asthma in the work if you are exposed to respiratory irritant and sensitizing chemicals. “Risk Subjects” for occupational asthma include so-called isocyanates, epoxy acrylates and detergents. Also persons in the working with some natural allergens and respiratory irritants plant substances – such as gardeners – had an increased risk of developing asthma. Asthma linked to factors at work in adulthood appears to greatly affect even people who have shown no signs of any allergies. According to the researchers’ calculations, work factors underlie approximately every seven new cases of asthma among men and approximately fortnightly new cases of asthma among women.

Cleaning Staff, spray painters, hairdressers and plumbers are some groups of the groups that are particularly vulnerable to such occupational asthma.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
