Abstract
Possible correlations of specific chemicals, gases, dusts, fumes, and mixed occupational and environmental exposures with the etiology of coronary arteriosclerotic heart disease are examined. Suspected and proved environmental risk factors in cardiovascular disease are reviewed, including exposures to carbon disulfide (75150), carbon- monoxide (630080), fibrogenic dusts, lead (7439921), cadmium (7440439), nitrates, hydrocarbons, fluorocarbons, cobalt (7440484), antimony (7440360), arsenic (7440382), arsine (7784421), yellow- phosphorous (7723140), and physical agents such as noise, radiation, heat, cold, and stress. The author concludes that etiological information on cardiovascular disease is sparse and represents a need for further research and recommends the use of new investigation techniques that are more sensitive and noninvasive than the questionnaire and electrocardiogram currently used for the detection of cardiovascular disease.
