| Chemical name
Respiratory irritant. Causes kidney damage. With experimental
animals, cadmium produced damage to the liver and central nervous
system and testicular atrophy.
animal carcinogen. When given to several species of pregnant
animals has also caused defects in their offspring. May cause
kidney damage. Causes acute nervous system effects.
carcinogen. Predominantly affects the central nervous system,
causing irritability, tremors, and convulsions. Causes kidney
corrosive to all tissues. Prolonged or repeated absorption of
low concentrations of cresol through the skin, mucous membrane,
or respiratory tract may cause chronic systemic poisoning.
suggests the chemical has cancer-causing properties. May cause
gene damage. Causes acute nervous system effects.
human carcinogen. May cause aplastic anemia. Skin, eye, respiratory
corrosive to all bodily tissues. Causes burns and frequently
deep ulceration with ultimate scarring. Mist, vapor, and dust
cause small burns. Eye contact can cause severe damage to delicate
carcinogen. Causes liver and kidney damage in animals. Exposure
to this chemical may make symptoms of angina worse. Smokers with
cardiac disease may be at increased risk due to reports of excessive
carboxyhemoglobin levels following exposure. Alters ability of
blood to carry oxygen to tissues. Skin, eye and respiratory irritant
(liquid and vapor). Mild narcotic.
human carcinogen. Potent cancer-causing agent in animals. Can
cause liver damage, jaundice and fever.
|| May cause
severe burns upon skin contact.
to eyes and mucous membranes. Systemic effects include weakness
and central nervous depression, with hypothermia and respiratory
failure. Allergen. Causes kidney irritation/damage.
alkaline and very corrosive to all body tissues.
eye, and respiratory irritant. Possible reproductive hazard.
Can cause tremors and convulsions. In animal experiments, rotenone
dust has caused liver and kidney damage and has produced tumors.
|| See Lye.
reproductive hazard. Vapor causes narcosis. Skin, eye, respiratory
liver and kidney damage in animals. May cause convulsions and
dermatitis in humans.
animal carcinogen. Common contaminants of commercial preparation
of 2,4,5-T cause severe acne and liver damage. Animal experiments
have shown that these contaminants may produce damage in unborn
and kidney damage have been observed. Possible reproductive hazard.
Eye and respiratory irritant. Can cause dermatitis and central
nervous system depression.
