Título Health of workers exposed to a cocktail of pesticides.
Información bibliográfica 4 Jan. 1974, Vol.32, No.3, p.191-201. Illus. 19 ref.
Resumen Several groups of workers in agriculture, horticulture and industry exposed for over 4 years to a variety of insecticides, fungicides and rodenticides were examined. The subjective symptoms, physical examination findings and laboratory parameters are tabulated and compared with data from literature. The exposed workers showed more subjective symptoms, more skin diseases and greater variability in laboratory data than matched controls; intensively exposed workers tended to show a higher prevalence of slight neurotoxic symptoms. It is concluded that a toxic overload of biological systems was probably present, which should be regarded as unacceptable from the viewpoint of occupational health.
