Chronic Health Effects:
Ethylbenzene is classified by IARC as possibly carcinogenic to humans
(2B) based on inadequate evidence in humans and sufficient evidence in
laboratory animals. Lifetime inhalation exposure of rats and mice to high
ethylbenzene concentrations resulted in increases in certain types of
cancer, including kidney tumors in rats and lung and liver tumors in mice.
These effects were not observed in animals exposed to lower concentrations.
There is no evidence that ethylbenzene causes cancer in humans.
Prolonged overexposure to solvent ingredients in Section 2 may cause
adverse effects to the liver and urinary systems.
Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents
with permanent brain and nervous system damage.
