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. To the existing county boroughs of Barrow-in-Furness, Blackburn, Bolton, Bootle, Burnley, Bury, Liverpool, ...

A furious row has broken out between senior Lancashire politicians over the policy of discharging elderly people from hospital into care homes as the coronavirus pandemic approached - without knowing if they had the disease.. In mid-March, hospitals across the country were ordered to free-up space in order to maximise critical care capacity for the wave of Covid-19 patients that were expected to hit the NHS.. However, it was not until 15th April that the government required all patients being sent to care homes to be tested - and in the intervening month around 25,000 patients in England made the move from the wards into the care sector.. Lancashire County Councils Conservative cabinet member for adult services, Graham Gooch, defended what he described as a big decision by the government to protect the NHS when appearing before a meeting of the authoritys internal scrutiny committee.. It was quite clear that if the strain was to be removed from hospitals, it had to go somewhere - it would ...

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 ...

In 2018 there were 58 accidental dwelling fires in Lancashire homes, with an ignition source of either cigarette lighters (7) or smoking materials (51).. 24% of the fires occurred within the Blackburn with Darwen district, followed by Preston with 17%.. Tabacco has been designed to stay lit and can smoulder for hours, long after you think youve extinguished it and cigarettes can burn at a temperature of up to 800 degrees. Careless disposal of cigarettes accounted for the largest proportion of ignition at 57% followed by careless disposal for example by sleeping and unconsciousness (perhaps from drug or alcohol consumption) at 24%.. If you dont need to smoke, please dont or try to think about giving up. If you arent ready to give up please take precautions to prevent fires from happening:. ...

As Stayley expanded in the 18th century, it reached the banks of the River Tame. After the construction of a bridge in 1707, the settlement was commonly referred to as Stalybridge, meaning the bridge at Stayley.[9] By the mid-18th century Stalybridge had a population of just 140. Farming and woolen spinning were the main means of subsistence at this time. In 1776 the towns first water-powered mill for carding and spinning cotton was built at Rassbottom. In 1789 the towns first spinning mill using the principle of Arkwrights Water Frame was built. By 1793 steam power had been introduced to the Stalybridge cotton industry; by 1803 there were eight cotton mills in the growing town containing 76,000 spindles. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal was completed in 1811 and still runs through the town. The rapid growth of industry in Stalybridge was due to the introduction of machinery. This was, however, met with violent opposition. After the arrival of the Luddites in the area the doors of mills were ...
