Toxic chemicals are leaking into the air we breathe

Toxic chemicals are leaking into the air we breathe and water we drink each day due to the negligence of chemical manufacturers and chemical storage facilities. Tanks buried underground are rusting releasing toxins into the ground that migrate into drinking supply. Chemical plants often release dangerous chemicals into the environment due to their failure to have proper safeguards in place.

Thousands are killed or seriously injured each year from chemical leaks

There are over 70,000 chemicals commercially produced in the United States today. Many chemicals are harmful even in low doses and constant exposure to low levels can cause multi-system dysfunction.

Someone suffering from chemical toxicity, a general term used to indicate adverse effects produced by poisons, usually presents with multi-system complaints depending on the tissues or organs involved, the pharmacological nature of the exposure, the susceptibility of the exposed person, and the presence of other body stressors.

Toxic Chemical Exposure affects the entire body

Signs and symptoms of toxic chemical exposure can cause dysfunction of the central nervous system resulting in headache, chronic fatigue, poor short term memory, hyperactivity, and increased appetite leading to food cravings and overeating. Respiratory complaints include adult onset "asthma", shortness of breath, and fibrotic lung disease. Heart palpitations and dysrhythmias herald severe cardiac dysfunction. Abdominal bloating, constipation, and multiple food intolerances signal gastrointestinal involvement.

Often Raynaud's-type vascular constriction resulting in cold hands and feet, easy bruising, or phlebitis signal chemically- induced peripheral vascular disease. Arthritis and myalgias indicate musculoskeletal involvement. Recurrent, sterile urinary tract inflammation, auto-immune endocrine involvement, and peripheral nerve weakness, paresthesias, and sensory deficits are also found. In fact, the hallmark of chemical sensitivity is that patients present with multisystem disease. This is because, once the chemicals enter the body, they enter the bloodstream and circulate to all parts of the body, even the brain.

Chemical Spills at Places of Employment

March 11, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

Chemical spills in the home or place of employment are serious.  Not only do they pose a threat to those in the area from the fumes, but once the product comes in contact with the skin severe burns may result.  And, although the fumes might not produce any immediate burning, the fumes and physical contact with the skin could be disfiguring and deadly.  Most of us can remember lessons in science class where some of us took the liberty to mix liquids that were not compatible. We always had water nearby, and seemingly often conducted our experiment under the supervision of a teacher. Did that give us the training for real life?  Some of us now work in places of employment where chemicals are used on a daily basis: places such as dry cleaning facilities, pest and insect removal businesses, gasoline and oil plants, and science laboratories. Many of us come in contact with sulfuric acid, nitric acid and phosphoric acid. If proper precautions are not taken, the contact and exposure could be deadly.
