Method : This was a cross-sectional study involving 80 women of childbearing age lived in agriculture area. Result : Involvement in agricultural activities (p=0,023, RP=1,52, 95%CI =1,00 to 2,29), pesticides exposure (p=0,007, RP=1,98, 95%CI=1,00 to 3,89), looking for pest (p=0,004, RP=1,52, 95% CI=1,12 to 2,04), harvesting (p=0,001, RP=1,69, 95% CI =0,19 to 2,39), releasing shallot from the stem (p=0,008, RP=1,44); 95%CI = 1.13 to 1,84) associated with increased of monocytes differential count.
