About ben­zene

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

Brief ex­po­sure (5 to 10 min­utes) to very high lev­els of ben­zene in the air (10,000 to 20,000 partsper-mil­lion) can re­sult in death. Lower lev­els (700 to 3,000 parts-per-mil­lion) can cause drowsi­ness, dizzi­ness, rapid heart rate, headaches, tre­mor, con­fu­sion and un­con­scious­ness. In most cases, peo­ple will stop feel­ing these ef­fects when they are no longer ex­posed and be­gin to breathe fresh air.
