Neurological disorders, bearing many similarities to Parkinson's disease, have been associated with environmental and occupational exposure to manganese (Mn). To document early nervous system dysfunction associated with long-term exposure to Mn, a battery of neurofunctional tests was administered to workers employed in Mn alloy production. Study participation was 95% (n = 115). A matched pair design was used; actively working men, with no history of workplace exposure to neurotoxins, were… CONTINUE READING
