Bernardo Ramazzini

Topic editor


Bernardino Ramazzini (October 4, 1633, Carpi - November 5, 1714, Padua) was an Italian physician. Ramazzini was one of the first to make the link between worker occupation and health, which he documented in his book De Morbis Artificum Diatriba (Diseases of Workers). This seminal work outlined the health hazards of Chemicals List, dust, metals, and other agents encountered by workers in 52 occupations. He also encouraged the use of cinchona bark, from which quinine is derived, in the treatment of malaria. (Sometimes called Bernardo Razzimazi.)

Diseases of Workers by Bernardino Ramazzini is available in translation.
