  • Description:
    The Toxicology Section of the Technical Development Services was officially begun on July 1, 1949, although a few studies were started in the early spring of 1949. Its purpose is to make a general investigation of the toxicology of economic poisons. The public health aspects of the problem involve: (a) employees in manufacturing and formulating plants, (b) workers or others exposed to pesticides by agricultural uses or in disease vector control programs, (c) persons occupying treated premises, (d) the general public who consume residues of economic poisons on or in foods, and (e) persons — often children — exposed entirely through carelessness or accident.
