  • Responsibility

    At this point in an adults life, he or she must be discerning enough to put 2 and 2 together……

  • Don't touch it!!!

    Benzene evaporates pretty quickly, but it is a killer…Several other Hydrocarbon “enes” (Xylenes, Ethylbenzene, Toulene, Styrene) as well as Hexane, Methylpentanes, and Isooctane will work you over, too! 🙁 They are very toxic per EPA Hazardous Chemicals data. They come from petroleum, so they are definitely fumigating the Gulf region…FACT. Benzene is ranked as the #5 MOST TOXIC chemical known to man!! Can you believe that?…And the other foregoing “ene” compounds that comprise “Polycylic Aromatic HYDROCARBONS” rank #9 (!) out of the 275 chemicals on the Hazardous Chemicals Priority list from the EPA & ATSDR (agency for toxic substances and disease registry) (No, Pres. Obama and BP are not going to explain this to you!!!)

  • Research

    the most current 2007 CERCLA Hazardous Chemicals Priority List places Benzene as #6 out of 275 Hazardous Chemicals.

    Does that tell you anything??? Odd that the Feds are so casual??
