Abstract

Serum levels of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) among 46 long-term workers at a pulp and paper mill were compared to the levels in 16 community residents who newer worked at the mill. Overall, there were no appreciable differences among the three exposure groups (community resident, low-exposure-potential worker, high-exposure-potential worker) for specific PCDDs or PCDFs. Neither exposure group nor duration in high-exposure-potential jobs was related to total toxic equivalents (I-TEQ). Serum levels of PCDDs and PCDFs in this study generally were within the range previously reported for persons with no known occupational exposure.
