Benzene is a liquid used primarily as a solvent in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Benzene is naturally occurring and can also be man-made. It is a component of crude oil, which is the main source of benzene today.

Benzene occurs naturally in petroleum products, such as gasoline. Benzene can also be found in gas emissions from volcanoes and forest fires. Even everyday items like sunscreen can contain the harmful chemical. Other products containing benzene are tobacco smoke, motor vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions, rubbers, dyes, detergents, solvents, degreasers, mineral spirits, plastics, resins, furniture wax, and pesticides.

어떻게 노출될 수 있습니까?

People can be exposed to benzene by breathing its vapors, skin contact, and ingestion. Most people are exposed to dangerous levels of the toxic chemical through their work. People working in the steel, rubber, painting, mechanic, firefighting, petroleum, and printing industries have a higher risk of being exposed and developing a benzene-related illness.

벤젠 노출의 위험은 무엇입니까?

벤젠 노출은 급성 골수성 백혈병, 비호지킨 림프종, 만성 림프구성 백혈병, 골수이형성 증후군 또는 재생불량성 빈혈, 혈액 장애를 유발할 수 있습니다.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) starts in the bone marrow (the soft inner part of certain bones, where new blood cells are made), but most often it quickly moves into the blood, as well. It can sometimes spread to other parts of the body including the lymph nodes, liver, spleen, central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), and testicles.

벤젠에 노출되어 발생하는 비호지킨 림프종은 면역 체계의 일부인 림프계에 형성됩니다. 림프 조직은 몸 전체에 있습니다. 결과적으로 NHL은 신체의 거의 모든 부분에서 시작할 수 있습니다. 일단 자리를 잡으면 암은 간과 다른 많은 중요한 기관과 조직으로 퍼지거나 전이될 수 있습니다. 2010년에는 미국에서 약 65,540건의 새로운 NHL 사례가 발생했으며 이 질병으로 인해 20,210명이 사망했다고 보고되었습니다.
