I came across this study today:
Doney BC, Henneberger PK, Humann MJ, Liang X, Kelly KM, Cox-Ganser JM. Occupational Exposure to Vapor-Gas, Dust, and Fumes in a Cohort of Rural Adults in Iowa Compared with a Cohort of Urban Adults. MMWR Surveillance Summaries November 3, 2017;66(No. SS-21):1–5. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15585/mmwr.ss6621a1
This health study of rural adults in the southernmost county of Iowa 1994–2011 showed rural residents were more likely to have medium or high occupational vapor-gas, dust, and fumes VGDF exposure at their last job (43% on average) than urban workers (15%) from another study. VGDF exposure varied by farming status, but interestingly, even among rural participants who had never farmed 27% had medium or high VGDF exposure , i.e. twice as many as urban workers.
This background risk ought to be borne in mind when assessing vapor intrusion risk from military toxics sites.
