SULFURIC ACID HEALTH EFFECTS
Health effects literature primarily related to inhalation exposures to sulfuric acid was collected, evaluated, tabulated, and summarized. Approximately 300 documents were collected from computerized and manual literature searches covering the period 1931-1981. Pharmacologists and an M.D. epidemiologist rated the documents according to their applicability to the study and their methodology. Those (approx. 150) documents considered useful for deriving a range of concern for human exposure to sulfuric acid from automotive emissions were tabulated. The 110 pages of tables detail the results of acute, repeated dose, and chronic testing of mice, hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats, monkeys, dogs, sheep, donkeys, and humans as well as human occupational and epidemiological studies. Most of the documents evaluated are described in an annotated bibliography.
