||The mechanisms of various industrial toxins in causing disease of the thyroid, testes, ovary and pancreas are reviewed. Toxins include: polyhalogenated biphenyls, polyhalogenated dibenzodioxins and dibenzofurans, organochlorine pesticides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, hydroxyphenols and hydroxy pyridines, phthalates, lithium, iodine and radiation. The importance of medical surveillance in the workplace is emphasized in the light of the increasing numbers of women in industry and the associated potential reproductive risks.
