Occupational Exposure

Occupational exposure to EDs presents a potential risk which needs to be further evaluated. There is good experimental and epidemiological evidence to suggest that occupational exposure to chemicals such as inorganic lead, manganese and mercury, and to organic chemicals such as dibromochloropropane (DBCP), ethylene glycol and carbon disulfide, can produce adverse effects on the male reproductive system.90 For many other agents, including most EDs, associations are either only suggested or suspected.
