L'ignorance en chaîne : la sous-reconnaissance des hémopathies professionnelles liées aux pesticides

Abstract : By focusing on a single family of pathologies - hemopathies - and a single type of occupational risk - exposure to pesticides - we hypothesize that the under-recognition of occupational diseases can be thought of as a "chain of ignorance". This term aims to underline the plurality of forms of ignorance surrounding the same social phenomenon and to articulate them . These different mechanisms may not only be juxtaposed but also mutually reinforcing: ignorance is here distributed and cumulative. In this chapter, we examine three stages: the production of toxicological and epidemiological knowledge concerning the link between haemopathies and pesticides; the translation of this knowledge into tables of occupational diseases in France; and the involvement of patients in procedures for recognition and compensation as occupational diseases.
