Abstract

Most of these gases (which included methyl isocyanate, hydrogen cyanide and monomethylamine) have produced permanent damage to the respiratory, gastrointestinal, reproductive, immunological, nervous, musculoskeletal and other systems of the bodies of the victims. One-fifth of the affected population continues to suffer from diseases related to exposure to these gases.
