Benzene exposure poses risk to worker health

Our own John Tomlinson visits Ringler Radio to discuss the health risks associated with benzene. Inhalation or absorption of the toxic chemical through the skin can cause life-threatening diseases including Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), lymphomas and aplastic anemia. Those who work in the petroleum, plastic or rubber industries may be exposed to benzene, and often symptoms do not manifest themselves until several years later.
