 40Benzene Containing Products

Benzene is an aromatic hydrocarbon. Benzene warnings in the work place have been in place for over 40 years, however many workers are still exposed to to benzene when working with refined petroleum products and chemicals including crude oil, toluene, jet fuel, naphtha, xylene, aviation fuel, gasoline or other aromatic hydrocarbons. Most workers come into contact with benzene by breathing it into their lungs or absorbing it through their skin when working with solvents. In the U.S. millions of workers are exposed to significant amounts of benzene every year. Even small amounts of exposure to benzene can cause acute myelogenous leukemia cancer.

Benzene Exposure Side Effects

Breathing very high levels of benzene vapors can result in death. High levels of benzene exposure can cause drowsiness, dizziness, rapid heart rate, headaches, tremors, confusion, and unconsciousness. Benzene MSDS sheets warn of benzene exposure to users of modern benzene containing products. The major effect of benzene from long-term exposure (vapor or dermal) is on the blood. Benzene causes harmful effects on the bone marrow and can cause a decrease in red blood cells leading to anemia. It can also cause excessive bleeding and can affect the immune system, increasing the chance for infection.

Long-term exposure to high levels of benzene in the air or dermal exposure to one's skin can cause leukemia, particularly acute myelogenous leukemia, often referred to as AML. This is a blood cancer of the blood-forming organs. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has determined that benzene is a known carcinogen. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the EPA have determined that benzene is carcinogenic to humans.

Toxic Benzene Exposure Side Effects

There are acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) side effects to a person being exposed to the chemical benzene. Benzene has been linked to the following:

•Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL)
•Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)
•Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
•Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL)
•Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
•Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL)
•Aplastic Anemia
•Blood Diseases
•Hematologic Cancers
•Hodgkin's Disease
•Interstitial Lung Diseases
•Myelofibrosis and Myeloid Metaplasia
•Multiple Myeloma
•Thrombocytopenic Purpura
