The health risks associated with exposure to benzene have been well documented for many years. Benzene is widely used in the manufacture of chemicals, detergents, plastics, nylon, and other synthetic fibers. It is also naturally found in crude oil, gasoline, and cigarette smoke. Although benzene has been banned in the United States for over 20 years, workers are still exposed to significant amounts of benzene poisoning when working with petroleum products. As with asbestos exposure, most workers come into contact with benzene by breathing it into their lungs. They also may absorb it through their skin when working with solvents.

Intense or prolonged benzene exposure can be responsible for numerous debilitating health effects, the most serious of which is leukemia, a potentially fatal cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. Although leukemia can occur in individuals who have never been exposed to benzene, the inhalation, ingestion or absorption of benzene can lead to the development of acute myeloid leukemia (acute myelogenousleukemia – AML). AML is indicated by abnormal blood cell production in the bone marrow, and causes a reduction of capacity in the immune system, leaving sufferers susceptible to infection and a host of other problems.
