Benzene is a sweet smelling, colorless, and highly combustible
liquid occurring both naturally and through human manipulation.
Also referred to as benzol 90, coal naphtha, pyrobenzol, phene,
or polystream, benzene is widely used in many industrial
processes such as the production of plastics, resins, nylon and
synthetic fibers, as well as some types of rubbers, lubricants, dyes,
detergents, drugs, and pesticides. The U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services has classified benzene as a known carcinogen.

There are many ways an individual can become exposed to high
levels of benzene:

-Employment in industries utilizing or producing
benzene (most likely source of high exposure)
-Contaminated air due to close proximity of industrial,
hazardous waste, or automotive service sites
-Contaminated water due to leakage of underground
storage facilities, as well as from rain or snow exposed
to airborne benzene
-Exposure to certain furniture waxes, detergents, paints
and glues
-Motor vehicle exhaust, tobacco smoke, and industrial
emissions

Short-term exposure to benzene may yield the following symptoms:

dizziness
higher than average heart rate
tremors
headaches
unconsciousness
confusion
lack of energy
vomiting
stomach irritation
convulsions
death

Long-term exposure (more than one year) greatly increases one's
chances of developing the following health complications:

Myelodysplasia
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Myelodysplastic Syndromes
Secondary Aplastic Anemia
Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)
Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL)
