Get to Know Benzene Before It Knows You by shirley

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Diseases Registry, a Department of the Health and Human Resources and the Centers for Disease Control, released this March the 2007 Toxicology Profile Report.This extensive document contains over 400 pages devoted to Benzene. Frighteningly, the most recent study regarding the health effects from industrial benzene is 1987. Additionally, according to the most recent 2004 data, Texas is the worst polluter of benzene, dumping over 2.5 millions tons into the air per year. Take a look at the entire report by going to www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/tp3.html#bookmark.10.
