another word for accounted for
Recent study found that respiratory conditions accounted for the large share of disability, and retirements among city firefighters, in the seven years following 9/11.
First, "grammar" is commonly misspelled.
Second, the sentence could read:
"According to a recent study, respiratory conditions are a major cause of disability and consequent retirement of city firefighters, in the seven years following 9/11."

Or you can rework the section. I think accounted for is quite appropriate.
A recent study found that respiratory conditions accounted for most of the disabilities and retirements among city firefighters in the seven years following 9/11.
The checker doesn't like me using "the" before disabilities. I tend to agree with Jeff above.
