||Intervention studies against "Green Symptoms" among Indian tobacco harvesters
||Sep.-Oct. 1991, Vol.46, No.5, p.316-317. 7 ref.
||The occurrence of "green symptoms" (nausea, vomiting, dizziness, prostration and weakness) and urinary excretion of nicotine and cotinine were examined among tobacco farmers on small farms in India. When gloves were worn during harvesting, most subjects reported a reduction in symptoms and urinary excretion rates of nicotine and cotinine were lower. When gloves, socks and boots were worn, excretion rates were significantly decreased and no symptoms were reported. The added protection offered by the socks and boots reduced the absorption of nicotine through the feet.
