This 1941 image of factory workers assembling storage batteries takes its theme from this month's editorial, "The Changing Face of Occupational Medicine." The editorial topic was suggested by the Policy Forum by Corita Grudzen and Peter Kerndt (Grudzen CR, Kerndt PR [2007] The adult film industry: Time to regulate? PLoS Med 4: e126 doi:10.1371/journal.pmed.0040126) on the need for the adult film industry to self-regulate to protect workers' rights and for occupational medicine to adapt to the requirements of workers today.
