    Many famers have many acute and chronic health conditions including cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis, skin cancer, hearing loss, and amputations. Many of these are due to agricultural chemical exposures and pesticide exposure. Click the link for more information. Hope this helps!

    Aside from the chemical exposure, long hot days in the sun put them at risk of sun burn and skin cancer as well as heat stroke and dehydration.

    I would imagine they are also susceptible to body bone or muscle degenerative diseases based on their postures for extended periods.
