Minimizing occupational exposure to pesticides: Acute and chronic effects of pesticides on human health
Part of the
book series (RECT, volume 75)

Defined broadly as “adverse effects,” they are commonly considered either acute effects, developing promptly and resolving rapidly, or chronic effects, which may appear after a delay, but then persist for weeks to years.
