    Objectives Occupational exposures are important and possibly modifiable contributors to the global burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Exposure to vapours, gases, dusts and fumes (VGDF) has been associated with a two- to threefold higher COPD risk. Less is known about effects...

    The relationship between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and occupational exposure to mineral dust is still conflicting because COPD is a multifactorial disease, relatively common in the general population. A number of studies have shown that in population exposed to mineral dust...

    Background: Glues are strong, liquid adhesive derived from animal tissues. It has been shown that glue sniffing is associated with demyelinating polyneuropathy. The low molecular weight agents which cause occupational lung disease have generally included the isocyanates exposure to which could...
