||Medical examinations of 170 workers aged 24-50 engaged in zineb (zinc ethylenebisdithiocarbamate) production revealed cholinergic reactions of the cardiovascular system in workers with up to 6 years of exposure to this fungicide. After 6-10 years adrenergic reactions were observed in those working in contact with zineb. Hypertension was much more common among men than among women, whereas hypotonia was rare among men but frequently encountered among women. Repetitive bronchospasm was observed at early and late stages of exposure. Concrete medical prophylactic measures are proposed.
