New data published in JAMA Network Open showed that the incidence of COPD was higher among nurses who regularly performed cleaning and disinfectant tasks. The researchers evaluated data from 73,262 women (mean age, 54.7 years; 96% white) who participated in the Nurses’ Health Study II from 2009 to 2015.
