Título Occupational health problems among tobacco processing workers: A preliminary study
Información bibliográfica Nov.-Dec. 1985, Vol.40, No.6, p.318-321. 15 ref.
Resumen Occupational health problems among 100 tobacco processing workers in India were investigated. 69 workers had symptoms including vomiting, giddiness, headache, etc. and showed an increased urinary excretion rate of nicotine and cotinine. Biochemical parameters were normal and electrocardiographic findings were non-specific; there was no clinical evidence of hypertension or ischaemic heart disease. Therefore, the symptoms of tobacco processing workers might possibly result from mild nicotine toxicity.
