Fifty seven male children between ages of 10-16 years engaged in the brassware industry at Moradabad in Northern India were studied for occupational morbidity.
The finding were compared with those obtained in the children (n=29) engaged in other ancillary units which did not involve exposure to the metal fumes and dust in their work environment.
The study showed a high prevalence of respiratory morbidity in the children engaged in the main units in comparison to those employed in the ancillary units (40.3 vs 27.6%; p<0.05).
