The prevalence of psychiatric morbidity in solvent workers in britain uk
Using data originally collected in Britain as part of the study of morbidity in general practice in 1970-71, the prevalence of minor psychiatric illness among workers exposed to organic solvents was estimated. No differences were found between the rates of consultation for mental illness in any solvent exposed group either male or female. Nor was any difference found in the prevalence of mental illness found between workers exposed to solvents and non-exposed referents when data were examined from 2 smaller studies.
