Título A review of agricultural pesticide incidents in man in England and Wales, 1952-1971.
Información bibliográfica July 1973, Vol.30, No.3, p.253-258. Illus. 6 ref.
Resumen Analysis of the cases of poisoning attributed to pesticides in England and Wales during the period 1952-1971. There were 9 fatal cases, of which only 3 were occupational in origin. There were 222 non-fatal incidents affecting 296 persons. The main problems in the use of pesticides in England and Wales today are: illicit decanting of concentrate from the manufacturers' labelled containers; hoarding of incompletely used containers; disposal of empty containers; importation of pesticides in indadequately labelled containers.
