1. Kanagawa Y, et al. (2008). Yusho Study Group After Yusho patients had suffered chronic exposure to these chlorinated compounds for more than 35 years, the serum concentration of 2,3,4,7,8-PeCDF in blood was significantly related to arthralgia and decreased albumin/globulin ratio; the serum concentration of polychlorinated biphenyls was significantly related to ophthalmologic symptoms; and the serum concentration of polychlorinated quarterphenyl to increased total cholesterol. 2,3,4,7,8-pentachlorodibenzofuran | Polychlorinated Biphenyls Japan Details Arthralgia | Eye Diseases | Hematologic Diseases

4. Parks CG, et al. (2016). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) Our results suggest that specific agricultural pesticides, solvents, and chemical fertilizers may increase the risk of rheumatoid arthritis in women, while exposures involving animal contact may be protective.
