Título Toxic effects of chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides on the human electroencephalogram.
Información bibliográfica Mar. 1974, Vol.28, No.3, p.159-163. Illus. 14 ref.
Resumen Electroencephalograms were obtained from a sample of 73 workers continually exposed to BHC, DDT and benzilan in a chemical plant. Abnormal records were obtained in 16 cases (21.9%). None of those examined showed either abnormal neurological features or clinical convulsions. This study suggests high exposure of the workers examined. However, it is not sure whether abnormal EEG patterns alone are a sufficient indication to warrant closure of the whole plant, but exposure should be reduced.
