Employees in hazardous operations

Industrial worker working with fire.jpg

Employees of different types of work environments may be exposed to various inorganic and organic substances. These contaminants in small amounts may not cause acute problems, but they accumulate in the body and over time can lead to various health disorders and diseases.

Arsenic - allergic dermatitis, eczema, anemia, lung cancer, ...

Lead - anorexia, dyspepsia, constipation, colic, anemia, encephalopathy, ...

Mercury - acute poisoning, psoriasis, ...

Chromium - skin inflammation, eczema, dermatitis, ...

Anthracene - with long-term exposure can cause cancer, ...

Toulene - damage to the nervous system, ...

PCBs - damage to the skin, liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, gastrointestinal and urinary tract and lymphatic and endocrine system, have estrogenic effects and cause disorders in the immune and nervous system, reproductive anomalies

Benzene - damage to the lungs and red and white blood cells, chronic damage to bone marrow can lead to the development of leukemia

Due to their complex chemical structure, humic acids are able to form strong chemical bonds and interactions with these contaminants, thus firmly absorbing them into their structure and helping to eliminate them from the body. Inorganic toxins are most often bound by humic substances by chelate bonds. In structures with organic substances, organic molecules are most often bound by hydrogen bonds, which are formed by the interaction of hydroxyl, carboxyl, ketone and other functional groups. Due to the high number of aromatic structures in the humic acid molecule, π-π interactions are also formed.

Regular detoxification of the body with humic acids can prevent the accumulation of contaminants in the body and thus reduce the likelihood of health problems.

In various chemical plants, workers may be or have been exposed to various, especially organic, hazardous substances such as anthracene, benzene, biphenyls, naphthalene, PCBs, but also to inorganic substances such as arsenic, lead, chromium and others. Hazardous work sites do not only include chemical plants, but also wastewater treatment plants (anthracene, chlorinated aromatic substances, toluene, ...), power plants (arsenic, mercury, zinc, ...), heating plants (nickel, zinc, benzene, biphenols, anthracene, ...), car manufacturers (benzene, anthracene, phthalates, naphthalene, ...), gas stations (benzodiazepines, fluorinated organic substances, ...), mines (arsenic, chromium, copper, nickel, lead, zinc, cyanides, ...), metallurgy (chromium, zinc, copper, nickel, benzene, naphthalene, phenols, cyanides, ...).
