In an epidemiological study carried out in three textile mills at Ahmedabad, India, 929 workers were examined from the spinning departments. The mean prevalence of byssinosis in the blow section was 29-62%, whereas in the card section it was 37-83%. The concentrations of cotton dust (dust less fly) were high in the blow and card sections (4 00 mg/m3 in the blow and 3-06 mg/m3 in the card section). This study suggests that the prevalence of byssinosis is not low in the textile mills of India asdoi:10.1136/oem.46.11.787 fatcat:6v35b7ltvjeopkuv3s4gf6dzm4
