||Occurrence of neuropsychiatric symptoms at low levels of occupational exposure to organic solvents and relationships to health, lifestyle and stress
||July/Sep. 1997, Vol.3, No.3, p.184-189. 28 ref.
||The prevalence of neuropsychiatric symptoms in 54 iron ore miners under notice of dismissal and in 124 age-matched controls was investigated. Several common factors influenced the prevalence of symptoms: occupational exposure to relatively low levels of organic solvents; illness demanding regular medication; alcohol consumption; and stressful life events such as job loss. The influences on neuropsychiatric symptoms of common exposures other than solvent exposure should be considered in studies of neurotoxic effects in solvent-exposed workers.
