Occupational diseases a guide to their recognition. Gafafer WM, Dublin LI, eds. Washington: DC: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Publication No. 1097, 1966 Jun; :63-242
An extensive list of most of the known disease producing chemicals is given with a summary for each one of the harmful effects (including local and systemic and route of entry), special diagnostic tests, recommended threshold limit, potential occupational exposures, and references to the literature. Many materials, even though innocuous, are presented because the question of toxicity may arise during the course of handling or working with these materials. Other compounds, though controversial from the standpoint of toxicity, are included for this reason. Some chemicals are excluded because of insufficient data.
