  A substantial number of children and adolescents work and are exposed to different occupational and environmental hazards. In order to identify the prevalence of lead toxicity and related risk factors, a study was conducted of 408 working children and adolescents in Alexandria. In 20.1% of those sampled, the blood lead level was > / = 25 mg/dl. For children working in battery workshops in El-Gomrouk and Mina El-Bassal districts, anaemia and smoking were found to be significantly associated with a higher risk of lead toxicity. Thus, more attention should be paid to the problem of lead toxicity in working children, particularly in industrialized urban cities with heavy traffic and an unprotected work environment.

  A multicentre case-control study was conducted to identify and quantify risk factors that may influence the development and progression of diabetic retinopathy. A total of 200 diabetic patients with nonproliferative retinopathy were compared with 400 diabetic patients without any eye complications with regard to the development of diabetic retinopathy. They were also compared with 200 diabetic patients with major eye complications to study the progression of diabetic eye complications. Results showed that the progression of diabetic eye complications was preventable since all the variables significantly affecting the process of progression, except type of diabetes, were avoidable.

  Census and health data were analysed to determine changes in life expectancy at birth during 1987-2000 in the Kuwaiti population and to correlate these with cause-specific annual mortality rates. Life expectancy at birth rose from 73.3 to 75.5 years with a gap between females and males, which increased from 2.2 to 4.5 years. For all causes of death except hypertension and ill-defined conditions, males had higher mortality than females. The leading causes of death in males were ischaemic heart diseases, traffic accidents and cancer, while in females they were cancer, ischaemic heart diseases and hypertension. The problems of an ageing population will need to be considered in planning the health policies of Kuwait.
