||Health status of pesticide applicators with attention to the peripheral nervous system
||1994, Vol.1, No.3. p.23-42. 24 ref.
||A health status survey was carried out on 102 pesticide applicators employed for over nine years and potentially exposed to a variety of fertilizers, herbicides and fungicides. As a group, the applicators were healthy save for abnormalities in nerve conduction studies in 29 subjects. Further studies revealed no evidence of exposure-related peripheral neuropathic symptoms or nerve conduction study effects and no significant differences in these endpoints between the pesticide applicators and a control group. Limitations of the study are discussed.
