Consideration of the official recognition of victims of environmental pollution. I. Environmental pollution in Toroku

Journal Article:

Abstract

The Toroku area in Miyazaki Prefecture has been appointed for special consideration of air-pollution related health disturbance victims and 48 inhabitants were selected for repeated medical examinations since 1971. The morbidities of subjective symptoms between a recognized group air pollution victims and an unrecognized group showed almost no difference. According to medical examinations, symptoms such as swelling of liver, decrease of sensation in the upper extremities, and decrease of sense of pain were very prevalent in both groups. Health problems in this area are due to arsenic, other elements, and sulfur dioxide; therefore, the presently used screening method for symptoms only due to arsenic is not appropriate.
