Título Haxachlorobenzene exposure from contaminated DCPA in vegetable spraymen.
Información bibliográfica Oct. 1974, Vol.29, No.4, p.192-194. 12 ref.
Resumen Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) blood residues were found in 19 of 20 vegetable spraymen exposed to HCB-contaminated dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate (DCPA). The mean level was 40± 63 parts per billion (ppb) with a range of 0-310ppb. No definite physical or biochemical effects of this exposure were discovered. Specifically there was no evidence of cutaneous porphyria. Although at the levels detected it appears that HCB has no short-term effects on humans, the possibility of long-term effects at the observed exposure cannot be excluded. The presence of HCB in any pesticide should be a warning of increased risk.
