    Re: Dursban Poisoning

    Posted by ff on 3/20/06

    As just a very basic thought, dursban/chlorpyrifos has been around
    for a long time. I looked for, but failed to locate, a book
    published by EPA (roughly 1989) on treating pesticide poisoning.
    There be something there, for example, cholestyramine was listed
    for chronic exposure to some classes of chemicals.
