Respiratory symptoms in Lancashire textile weavers. (1/80)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate a large population of cotton textile weavers for reported respiratory symptoms relative to occupational factors, smoking, and exposure to dust. Cotton processing is known to produce a respiratory disease known as byssinosis particularly in the early processes of cotton spinning. Relatively little is known about the respiratory health of the cotton weavers who produce cloth from spun cotton. By the time cotton is woven many of the original contaminants have been removed. METHODS: 1295 operatives from a target population of 1428 were given an interviewer led respiratory questionnaire. The presence of upper and lower respiratory tract symptoms were sought and the work relatedness of these symptoms determined by a stem questionnaire design. Also occupational and demographic details were obtained and spirometry and personal dust sampling performed. RESULTS: Byssinosis was present in only four people (0.3%). Chronic bronchitis had a moderate overall prevalence of about 6% and was related predominantly to smoking. There were several other work related respiratory symptoms (persistent cough 3.9%, chronic production of phlegm 3.6%, chest tightness 4.8%, wheezing 5.4%, and breathlessness 2.3%). All of these were predicted predominantly by smoking (either past or present), with no consistent independent effect of exposure to dust. Work related eye and nasal symptoms were more common (10.4% and 16.9% respectively). CONCLUSION: Byssinosis is a rare respiratory symptom in cotton weaving. Other work related respiratory symptoms were reported but their presence was predominantly related to smoking with no consistent effects of exposure to dust.  (+info)

A clinical and radiographic study of coir workers. (2/80)

Processing of coir, which is the fibre obtained from the husk of the coconut, is a dusty procedure; 779 workers in two coir processing factories in Sri Lanka were examined clincally and radiographically for evidence of respiratory disease. Respiratory symptoms were present in 20 (2-6%) of them, which is no higher than in the general population. Respiratory disease such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, byssinosis, and pulmonary tuberculosis which may occur from occupational exposures were considered, but there was no evidence to suggest a definite association between these conditions and coir dust. Twenty-two workers had abnormal chest radiographs, but when compared with a control group of 591 workers from an engineering firm where lesions were found in 20 cases, there was no significant difference. In the opinion of the medical officer, management and workers of the large factory investigated, coir dust does not produce any respiratory disability. The chemical composition of coir dust is similar to that of sisal which is also relatively inert.  (+info)

Dust exposure in manual flax processing in Egypt. (3/80)

Manual flax processing originated in Egypt in 2 000 BC. In the present study a representative sample of the workers involved in this trade, where flax is processed in small workshops or homes, was examined, and their dust exposure was evaluated. The study showed that workers handling and processing flax are exposed to high concentrations of dust; the levels of dust at hackling and combing are considerably higher than at batting and spinning. Byssinosis prevailed in 22-9% of the examined workers, and 18-4% of them had their forced expiratory volume in one second reduced by more than 10% at the end of the first morning work period (4 hours) of the week. Both the rates and the grades of these syndromes increased with duration of exposure. Smoking appeared to be one of the important contributory factors in the production of byssinosis. The relationship between dust concentration and prevalence of byssinosis seems to be curvilinear.  (+info)

Pilot study of closing volume in byssinosis. (4/80)

A study of the relative sensitivities of forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), maximal mid-expiratory flow (MMF), and closing volume (CV) in the detection of subjects with byssinosis was carried out in a North Carolina cotton mill. Altogether 35 workers participated in the study. Of these, nine showed a decline in FEV1 of 10% or more during the first work shift that followed the weekend break. Twelve subjects showed a decrease in MMF of 15% or more. In contrast only six workers exhibited a 10% increase in closing capacity, while ten showed a 10% increase in CV. Recent evidence of the magnitude of variability in closing volume manoeuvres suggests that our chosen level of change was too low, A 40% change in CV would have identified only five subjects. CV is a more complex manoeuvre for the subject being tested and for the technician to perform, is more time consuming, and is subject to greater variation. To have any advantage over spirometry, CV would have to be appreciably more sensitive. Our study suggests that it is not. However, the MMF may prove to be more sensitive than the FEV1 in the detection of byssinosis.  (+info)

An evaluation of effect of airborne dust from a cotton mill on the guinea-pig ileum with reference to byssinosis. (5/80)

The effect of airborne dust on the guinea-pig ileum was studied. Tyrode extracts of airborne dust collected freshly in the cardroom of a cotton mill, and extracts of air pollutant samples drawn on the roof of the mill and of the local town hall were all found to induce the guinea-pig ileum to contract when applied in a tissue-bath. However, the force of contraction with air pollutants was rather greater than that with the cardroom dust. Considering the variables involved, the ileum response to the cardroom dust may have been due to ordinary air pollutants which constitute a significant part of the dust. It is concluded that this pharmacological phenomenon is probably not relevant in the context of byssinosis.  (+info)

Prevalence of byssinosis and respiratory symptoms among cotton mill workers. (6/80)

BACKGROUND: While the prevalence of byssinosis is decreasing in industrialized countries and persists at high levels in developing countries, this prevalence is remaining constant in Turkey. OBJECTIVE: In order to determine the effects of past cotton dust exposure on the respiratory tract, a total of 223 persons working in a cotton mill were included in this study. METHODS: A questionnaire was used to inquire about respiratory symptoms. Participants underwent several spirometric measurements, which were performed on the 1st, 3rd and 5th day of the working week. Cotton dust measurements were performed in different divisions of the factory. RESULTS: The most common respiratory symptom was chest tightness (20.3%). The prevalence of byssinosis was 14.2% in cotton-processing workers. Among these cases, 28.6% had symptoms on the 1st day of the week, and 71.4% had symptoms on all days of the week. An acute effect was seen in 53.6% of the workers with byssinosis. Mean respirable dust levels were between 0.095 and 0.413 mg/m(3). CONCLUSIONS: In spite of technological improvements, respirable dust concentrations are still above the permissible limits, and thus the risk of byssinosis remains. Workers in the cotton industry where obsolete technology is used and standardized protection measures are not applied should be followed for byssinosis.  (+info)

Comparative study of the smooth muscle contractor activity of airborne dusts and of dustiness in cotton, flax, and jute mills. (7/80)

A bioassay technique using isolated guinea-pig ileum was employed to compare the smooth muscle contractor activity of various dusts from mills in which the prevalence of byssinosis was known. The activity of dust from a mill spinning a coarse grade of cotton was several times greater than that in dust from a mill processing a fine grade of cotton. There was a similar order in the difference of the prevalence of byssinosis in these mills. However, the activities of fine cotton, flax, and jute dusts were very similar to each other, in spite of marked differences in the prevalence of byssinosis in these mills. For cotton dust, smooth muscle contractor activity was associated with all particle sizes, although the lowest level of activity was found in the largest sized fraction (less than 2 mm). Activity in the cotton dust extracts was not correlated with nitrogen, carbohydrate, or potassium content. However, about one-fifth of the activity of a cotton dust extract was associated with an insoluble particulate fraction. The possible chemical nature of the water-soluble contractor agent is discussed. It is concluded that, until the role of this agent in the pathogenesis of byssinosis has been established, the bioassay technique cannot be employed as a means of assessing the byssinogenic potential of cotton dust.  (+info)

Epidemiological investigation of the role of family susceptibility and occupational and family histories in the development of byssinosis among workers exposed to flax dust. (8/80)

Epidemiological investigation of 475 workers exposed to dust in flax processing has shown that family susceptibility has a decisive role in the development of byssinosis in those workers. Workers whose fathers had occupational history of exposure to flax dust were more resistant to the development of the disease than those whose fathers had no such history. Such tolerance was much higher in workers whose fathers were byssinotic than those with byssinosis-free fathers. Further hereditary and immunological investigations are, however, needed.  (+info)

A report on byssinosis, an occupational respiratory disease of cotton, flax, and hemp workers, in the U.S. In the cotton industry, it occurs primarily among cardroom workers. Disabling byssinosis occurs among cotton workers irrespective of other environmental conditions such as air pollution, climate, and cigarette smoking. In this paper, data are presented on a group of cotton workers with respir
In the chronic setting, there is no easing of symptoms by the end of the week. Chronic byssinosis is sometimes mistaken for emphysema. However, cotton dust does not cause emphysema but this lung disease may be present as a result of long term cigarette smoking. Breathlessness, chest tightness, crackles and severely reduced lung function is irreversible in the chronic stage and can lead to respiratory failure. This is often accelerated by continued cigarette smoking despite the patient having stopped working in the textile industry ...

Lancashire is smaller than its historical extent following a major reform of local government.[14] In 1889, the administrative county of Lancashire was created, covering the historical county except for the county boroughs such as Blackburn, Burnley, Barrow-in-Furness, Preston, Wigan, Liverpool and Manchester.[15] The area served by the Lord-Lieutenant (termed now a ceremonial county) covered the entirety of the administrative county and the county boroughs, and was expanded whenever boroughs annexed areas in neighbouring counties such as Wythenshawe in Manchester south of the River Mersey and historically in Cheshire, and southern Warrington. It did not cover the western part of Todmorden, where the ancient border between Lancashire and Yorkshire passes through the middle of the town.. During the 20th century, the county became increasingly urbanised, particularly the southern part.

Bank Note, Maine The central image on this bank note from Maine depicts workers at one of the many cotton mills in Lowell, Massachusetts. The mills recruited young women from New England farms, most between the ages of fifteen and twenty-five. Generally, these workers stayed for just a few years and then returned home to marry. The companies housed them in dormitories and closely regulated all aspects of their lives, even church attendance. Visitors from Europe, accustomed to the kind of wretched working-class conditions found in the novels of Charles Dickens, remarked on the cleanliness and order of the living quarters, the relatively high wages, and the intelligence and good character of the mill girls. Dickens himself, after a brief visit to Lowell, said that the difference between American and English mills was the difference between the Good and Evil, the living light and deepest shadow. He was particularly impressed that the workers published their own literary magazine, The Lowell ...

The changes in symptoms and lung function tests of 26 cotton cardroom workers were investigated before and after inhalation of histamine aerosols. Three subjects with no chest symptoms and 11 with uncomplicated byssinosis showed no evidence of any pulmonary reaction, but 12 bronchitic byssinotic subjects showed evidence of the pulmonary hypersensitivity found in patients with chronic bronchitis alone.. These findings cast doubt on the possible role of non-antigenic histamine liberators in the mechanism of production of `return-to-work tightness in byssinosis.. ...

SACRAMENTO (CN) - Porn mogul Larry Flynt lost his hope of expanding his gambling businesses on Friday when a federal judge dismissed with prejudice his challenge to a California law on organized crime that prevents ownership of out-of-state casinos.. U.S. District Judge John Mendez found that Flynt and father-and-son cardroom owners due process claims fall outside a two-year statute of limitations.. Flynt, who owns Hustler Casino and Larry Flynts Luck Lady Casino in Southern California, claimed an outdated state law prevented him from investing in lucrative casino opportunities in 2014 and 2015.. The Gambling Registration Act was enacted to keep the mob out of California gambling operations by limiting cardroom operators financial resources. The legislation prevents residents with California gaming licenses from investing in out-of-state casinos, and bars out-of-state residents who own gambling businesses from obtaining California cardroom licenses.. Flynt and Haig Kelegian Sr. and Jr. argued ...
Those beautiful farms up there that had for years produced the best cotton crops in the United States, had begun to wear out. And they were not getting anything for their product-it wasnt commercially feasible to raise cotton. The cotton mills up there were closed down or working one shift, and the people working in them werent making more than a dollar an hour, something like that. One of the big arguments made against the minimum wage law, where Hugo Black was involved, was that if they paid $1.35 an hour they would break every hosiery mill and every textile mill and every saw mill in the state of Alabama. none of them could operate under those terms. So as the New Deal went on, it just became obvious that it was good for the state ...

About May 2019 National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates. (1) Estimates for detailed occupations do not sum to the totals because the totals include occupations not shown separately. Estimates do not include self-employed workers.. (2) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a year-round, full-time hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.. (3) The relative standard error (RSE) is a measure of the reliability of a survey statistic. The smaller the relative standard error, the more precise the estimate.. (8) Estimate not released.. ...
On the outskirts of Urumqi he finds a cotton mill and the usual band of young workers attracted from the impoverished countryside by the promise of a steady but boring job. As payment he agrees to take one of his guides out to dinner. However, the guide is joined by seven fellow workers, all presumably expecting to be fed by the Joe. He then takes part in a drinking contest (which is hilarious), and this entertains them so much with his antics that they insist on footing his bill themselves ...
Going forward, it is recognized that the disease had an opportunity of staging a comeback from the margins of the intervening filling. When dental cariesre-occurs, a recurrent dental caries at all times necessitate a bigger filling compared with the preliminary one. The most objective of dental caries management is hinged on the identifiable elements of its etiology, nay-the behavioral and the bacterial. Risk management therefore opens a front for environment friendly administration of dental caries..

We used data from two large case-control studies conducted in Montreal to assess the relationship between occupational exposure to cotton dust and wool dust and risk of lung cancer. Subjects in Study 1 were in their active work years roughly from the 1940s to the 1970s, whereas the active period for Study 2 subjects was the 1950s to 1980s. Thus there was considerable overlap. It is likely that the average concentrations of exposure declined between the two studies because of improved industrial hygiene and use of personal protective equipment. Historically the Province of Quebec was the hub of the clothing and textile industries in Canada, and despite decreasing quotas and increasing offshore production, it so remains with approximately 50,000 workers employed in these fields [33]. Lifetime prevalence of exposure was higher in Study 2 than in Study 1 because females, who were disproportionately active in the textile and clothing industries, were not included in Study 1, and because there seemed ...
1980), was relevant to the issues in the present cases. We disagree. OSHA amended its Cancer Policy to "carry out the Courts interpretation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 that consideration must be given to the significance of the risk in the issuance of a carcinogen standard and that OSHA must consider all relevant evidence in making these determinations." 46 Fed. Reg. 4889, col. 3 (1981). Previously, although lacking such evidence as dose-response data, the Secretary presumed that no safe exposure level existed for carcinogenic substances. Industrial Union Dept. v. American Petroleum Institute, supra, at 620, 624-625, 635-636, nn. 39 and 40 (plurality opinion). Following this Courts decision, OSHA deleted those provisions of the Cancer Policy which required the "automatic setting of the lowest feasible level" without regard to determinations of risk significance. 46 Fed. Reg. 4890, col. 1 (1981). In distinct contrast with its Cancer Policy, OSHA expressly found that ...

Cellulose. 18(5):1239-1249. Interpretive Summary: The creation of new markets for value-added, protective cotton textiles is currently an agriculture issue. Work in Southern Regional Research Centers Cotton Textile Chemistry Unit is addressing the application of bio-active molecules to cotton textiles as a model to explore the creation of new value-added cotton products with highly selective properties and environmentally acceptable finishes. The highly absorbent, non-toxic, and soft-hand properties of cotton make it an attractive option as a biocompatible textile surface for clothes and biomedical materials. Recent interest in the development of antimicrobials attached to cotton materials include modifications that function through fiber entrapment with slow release activity, and covalent modifications designed to ...
As a rock, asbestos is actually very solid. It is unique, however, because it can be broken up into fibers that peel off-a very odd property for such a solid material. When asbestos was discovered, it was hailed as one of the best materials ever. Asbestos was used for construction, ship building, insulation and electrical tools, and textiles. Asbestos is heat and flame resistant, making it perfect for industries that have high levels of heat and pressure within their buildings. It was also used in homes and consumer products such as hair dryers and clothing. Asbestos fibers can be short and sharp and also long, wavy and silky. It was this latter form of the mineral that was added to the textile making process. Little was known about asbestos, but when the truth came out, it worried everybody. Asbestos is actually a very harmful fiber that can cause mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer.. For textile mill workers, the asbestos added to the fabrics put them at risk every day for exposure. Protective ...

Of 2,528 persons aged 35 years and over who were interviewed during a survey of Northern Ireland flax mills, 2,003 (79%) carried out tests of one-second forced expiratory volume (F.E.V.1·0) and forced vital capacity (F.V.C.) which were suitable for analysis. The omission of the remaining 525 workers is discussed in the text.. The object of this paper is to compare each of these two measurements of ventilatory capacity between preparers and non-preparers of flax in this industry.. Many factors, other than job, may influence ventilatory capacity; these include sex, smoking habits, the area of the mill, the type of fibre handled, byssinotic grade, age, and stem height. Within each sex and job, workers were divided into eight basic groups according to whether they did or did not smoke, whether the mill was in a town or rural area, and whether the mill processed only flax or flax plus synthetic fibres. Within each of these basic groups of non-byssinotic non-preparers, regression equations of the ...
