Abstract
A limited investigation of respiratory and other symptom prevalence, plus before and after shift ventilatory capacity is conducted among a group of 17 meat wrappers exposed to pyrolysis products of polyvinyl-chloride (9002862) and a group of 21 control subjects. Exposed meat wrappers show a higher prevalence of cough, phlegm, hay fever, and asthma, than did the control group. The results indicate that meat wrappers exposed to pyrolysis products of polyvinyl- chloride might be affected adversely.
