Humans were chronically exposed to 7-10 years continuously for 8-10 hours per day by inhalation of these compounds exposure enter into circulation and changes in whole blood, plasma and urine. A significant decrease in the concentrations of thyroxine and testosterone with no change in the levels of LH, FSH and triodothyroxine.
