The authors studied noncancer mortality among phenoxyacid herbicide and chlorophenol production workers and sprayers included in an international study comprising 36 cohorts from 12 countries followed from 1939 to 1992. Exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin or higher chlorinated dioxins (TCDD/HCD) was discerned from job records and company questionnaires with validation by biologic and environmental measures. Standard mortality ratio analyses suggested a moderate healthy worker effect… Expand
Heart Disease , and Diabetes in Workers Exposed to 2 , 3 , 7 , 8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin
Background: In 1997, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzopdioxin (TCDD) as a group 1 human carcinogen, based largely on four highly exposed industrialExpand
Dioxins and Cardiovascular Disease Mortality
TLDR
The results of this systematic review suggest that dioxin exposure is associated with mortality from both IHD and all CVD, although more strongly with the former. Expand
Cancer, heart disease, and diabetes in workers exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin.
TLDR
Excess cancer was limited to the highest exposed workers, with exposures that were likely to have been 100-1000 times higher than those experienced by the general population and similar to the TCDD levels used in animal studies. Expand
Persistent health effects of dioxin contamination in herbicide production.
TLDR
The prevalence of neurological symptoms and signs of chronic liver disease were related to TCDD in blood and abnormal poryphyrins in urine, contributing to the evidence that chloracne is not the only chronic disease which can be related toTCDD exposure, even 23 years after exposure and despite high intersubject variability of T CDD half-life and other exposures.

Dioxin and diabetes mellitus: an analysis of the combined NIOSH and Ranch Hand data
TLDR
There was little overall evidence that the exposed workers were at higher risk than the non-exposed workers of diabetes or abnormal fasting glucose, but the Ranch Hand subjects showed a positive dose-response for diabetes, whereas the more highly exposed NIOSH subjects did not. Expand
Health effects of dioxin exposure: a 20-year mortality study.
TLDR
Results support evaluation of dioxin as carcinogenic to humans and corroborate the hypotheses of its association with other health outcomes, including cardiovascular- and endocrine-related effects. Expand
Association between dioxin and cancer incidence and mortality: a meta-analysis
TLDR
External exposure and blood level of TCDD were both significantly associated with all cancer mortality, especially for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and subgroup analysis suggested that higher external exposure andBlood level of Dioxin/2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin were both significant associated with the mortality caused by non- Hodgkins lymphoma.

Chronic exposure to chlorophenol related compounds in production workplace and kidney cancer: A meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of this study strengthen the evidence of cancer in occupational exposure to cholophenols contaminated with TCDD, which increased the risk of death from kidney cancer which was related to the type of chorophenol compound and dioxine contamination. Expand
Relationships between exposure to polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons and organochlorine pesticides and the risk for developing type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and a meta-analysis of exposures to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD)
A systematic review was performed to evaluate the association between environmental exposures to polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (PHAHs) and organochlorine (OC) pesticides and the risk for typeExpand
Halogenated Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Cardiovascular Disease
Halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (HAHs) are ubiquitous environmental pollutants and they include polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs), and biphenyls (PCBs). Most humansExpand

Cancer mortality in workers exposed to phenoxy herbicides, chlorophenols, and dioxins. An expanded and updated international cohort study.
TLDR
Exposure to herbicides contaminated with TCDD and higher chlorinated dioxins may be associated with a small increase in overall cancer risk and in risk for specific cancers. Expand
Dioxin exposure and non-malignant health effects: a mortality study.
TLDR
These results, although not conclusive, concur with previous data in suggesting cardiopulmonary and endocrine effects in humans highly exposed to TCDD, as well as its complex interaction with the endocrine system. Expand
Cancer mortality in workers exposed to chlorophenoxy herbicides and chlorophenols
TLDR
Risks appeared to be increased for cancers of the testicle, thyroid, other endocrine glands, and nose and nasal cavity, based on small numbers of deaths, and the excess of soft-tissue sarcomas among sprayers does not seem to be specifically associated with those herbicides probably contaminated by TCDD. Expand
Cancer mortality in workers exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin.
TLDR
This study of mortality among workers with occupational exposure to TCDD does not confirm the high relative risks reported for many cancers in previous studies, and conclusions about an increase in the risk of soft-tissue sarcoma are limited by small numbers and misclassification on death certificates. Expand
Morbidity follow up study of BASF employees exposed to 2,3,7, 8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) after a 1953 chemical reactor incident.
TLDR
Examination of the long term morbidity experience of men exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin concluded that heightened awareness and personal health concerns led to greater utilisation of medical services in the exposed group, and the findings based on TCDD concentration should be less subject to this potential bias. Expand
Occupational exposure to phenoxy herbicides and chlorophenols and cancer mortality in The Netherlands.
TLDR
It is suggested that the increases in cancer mortality among workers exposed to phenoxy herbicides and chlorophenols may be attributable to chance and Lack of power prevented evaluation with respect to specific cancers. Expand
Mortality and incidence of cancer at four factories making phenoxy herbicides.
TLDR
Four British cohorts of chemical manufacturers recruited to the survey of workers exposed to these compounds in their production or use are described, and their mortality compared with that in the national population is described. Expand
Human health effects of 2,4,5-T and its toxic contaminants.
TLDR
An association was found between the persistence of chloracne and the presence and severity of actinic elastosis of the skin, and there is an association between exposure and the history of gastrointestinal tract ulcer. Expand
The Mortality Experience of Workers Exposed to 2,3,7,8‐Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in a Trichlorophenol Process Accident
TLDR
Examination of mortality rates for 754 employees at a chemical plant after an accident in 1949 finds workers exposed to 4-aminobiphenyl who developed chloracne from the accident had increased mortality rates from soft tissue sarcoma, bladder cancer, and respiratory cancer. Expand
Update of mortality among chemical workers with potential exposure to the higher chlorinated dioxins.
TLDR
Analyses by various indices of exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and hexa- to octachlorinated dioxins did not show deaths from these cancers to have been disproportionately distributed among the workers considered to have had the highest exposures. Expand
