Información bibliográfica 3rd quarter 2009, Vol.22, No.3, p.227-234. Illus. 29 ref.
Resumen The study investigated the functioning of the taste and smell senses in workers employed at a sewage treatment plant and landfill in Poland. The study population was divided into three groups: sewage workers, landfill workers and laboratory workers. Taste disorders were noted in nearly 20% of subjects in each study group examined before work, and in 50% of sewage workers, 40% of landfill workers and 28% of laboratory workers examined after work. Before work, the smell disorders concerned 32% in the group of sewage workers, 6% of laboratory workers and 22% of landfill workers. After the working hours, these values increased to 40%, 8% and 38%, respectively.
