Cooks are an overlooked group with occupational respiratory symptoms

Cooks are an overlooked group with occupational respiratory symptoms
This paper is about respiratory symptoms in cooks, who have often been an overlooked groupfor ocupational respiratory diseases. Frying, particularly using gas, was asociated with a increades prevalence of chronic bronchitis symptoms which improved away from exposure, suggesting that at least some of this might represent occupational astha. I hope the study is extended with serial PEF measurements and some exposure measurements.
