Systemic sclerosis: environmental and occupational risk factors.

There is growing concern about the association between systemic sclerosis and certain environmental and occupational risk factors, including exposures to vinyl chloride, adulterated cooking oils, L-tryptophan, silica, silicone breast implants, organic solvents, and other agents such as epoxy resins, pesticides, and hand/arm vibration. This article highlights the current medical research that has examined these associations in scleroderma-like disorders and in systemic sclerosis.[1]
