What are other manifestations of occupational poisoning?

Blood system. Many poisons can cause damage to the blood system, which is often manifested as anemia, bleeding, hemolysis, methemoglobin, and leukemia, depending on the toxicity. Lead can cause hypochromic anemia. Benzene and trinitrotoluene and other toxins can inhibit bone marrow's hematopoietic function and decrease white blood cells and thrombocytopenia. Severe patients develop aplastic anemia. Carbon monoxide binds to hemoglobin in the blood to form carboxyhemoglobin, starving the tissue of oxygen.  
Digestive system. The effects of toxins on the digestive system are varied, and massive amounts of toxins such as mercury salt and arsenic enter through the mouth result in abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. When people poisoned with lead and thallium, severe persistent abdominal cramps can occur, as well as mouth ulcers, swollen gums, loose teeth and other symptoms. Long-term inhalation of acid fog can result enamel destruction, shedding, which is named as acid corrosion. Inhaling a large amount of fluorine gas can make brown spots on the teeth, dentine fragile, knonw as dental fluorosis. Many toxins that damage the liver, such as carbon tetrachloride, bromobenzene and trinitrotoluene, cause acute or chronic liver disease.
