European Meeting of Environmental Hygiene. Prague (CZE), 1995/06/27.
Cases of non-occupational intoxications with pesticides registered in 26 counties of Romania between 1988 and 1993 are reported.
From the total number the accidental cases represent high values (53% - 73%) in this period, showing an elevated death rate of 10.1% - 26.4%. Products or active substances which contributed to intoxications were identified only in approximately 30% of cases.
Therefore, a more careful analysis of cases with intoxications and a more rigorous control by law of pesticide use is recommended.
