Effect of exposure of miners to aluminium powder.
« Mclntyre Powder » (finely ground aluminium and aluminium oxide) was used as a prophylactic agent against silicotic lung disease between 1944 and 1979 in mines in northern Ontario.
To find out whether the practice produced neurotoxic effects a morbidity prevalence study was conducted between 1988 and 1989.
There were no significant differences between exposed and non-exposed miners in reported diagnoses of neurological disorder.
