Both the exposed (study) group and the nonexposed (control) group contained five persons who were medically examined before and after their 1-week working period (including laboratory tests) for possible health effects.
In addition, exposure to glyphosate was measured in the study group from samples taken from the workers' breathing zone and from urine samples collected during the afternoons of the workweek.
Exposure to glyphosate through the workers' breathing zone was low.
The highest value found was 15.7 mug/m3.
In this study, a biological monitoring method was also developed to monitor the workers' exposure to glyphosate.
