Signs of possible chronic intoxication due to insecticides were sought among 441 apple-growers. A group of 170 persons living in the same environment and 162 other persons having no contact with insecticides were used as controls. It was the first attempt to determine signs of chronic intoxication by organic phosphate and chlorinnated hydrocarbon insecticides. The greater incidence of leukopenia and of neurologic manifestations found among the subjects sugges tthat insecticides may have some chronic effects in man. This assumption is reinforced by the similarities in the findings between the subjects and the environments, and by the parallelism between the duration of exposure to insecticides and the number of affected subjects. The repetition of this study at five-year intervals seems desirable until a sufficient number of apple-gowers have been studied who have been exposed to large doses of insecticides for 10,15 or 20 years.
