||Health costs and benefits of fungicide use in agriculture - A literature review
||1994, Vol.1, No.1, p.19-37. 61 ref.
||Acute and chronic health effects associated with six major chemical categories of fungicides are described. Effects include allergic dermatitis and skin or mucous membrane irritation. Some fungicides also show carcinogenic and mutagenic effects in animals. Since unopposed fungal growth may lead to the formation of mycotoxins in food and other substances, judicious use of fungicides is required in order to obtain a balance between adverse effects from fungicides and mycotoxins.
