Chemical and Biological Exposures in Outdoor Farming Environments

Outdoor farming environments have numerous potential occupational exposures of concern.
We focused our evaluation on three exposures: endotoxins, microbial biodiversity (fungi
and bacteria), and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Endotoxins are lipopolysaccharide
compounds that may be released by the outer cell walls of Gram-negative bacteria and can
cause adverse respiratory effects such as chronic bronchitis and asthma [Castellan 1995; Park
2006]. Fungi can produce health effects by four mechanisms: infections (e.g., pulmonary
aspergillosis), irritant reactions (e.g., burning, blistering skin), allergic reactions (e.g., allergic
rhinitis), and toxic reactions (e.g., gastrointestinal symptoms from ingesting mycotoxins)
[Trout et al. 2004]. THC is the psychoactive component in cannabis.
