||Estimation of long-term exposure to pesticides
||Apr. 1994, Vol.25, No.4, p.573-588. 26 ref.
||An exposure index was developed to estimate long-term dermal and inhalation exposure of bulb farmers to pesticides. The proposed index consists of generic levels of exposure specific to the method of application and is further determined by farm-related parameters such as acreage and number of pesticide applications. Ranking of 127 bulb farmers according to calculated lifetime dermal exposure correlated only moderately to ranking based on duration of exposure. The proposed index could provide a useful estimate of long-term exposure to a mixture of pesticides in epidemiological investigations.
