Because of the demonstrated toxic effects on animals resulting from exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health conducted a retrospective cohort mortality study of 2,567 workers in two plants where PCBs were used in the manufacture of electrical capacitors. All workers included in the study were employed for at least 3 months in areas of the plants where PCBs were used. The vital status of 98% of the two cohorts was determined, and 39… CONTINUE READING
