QUESTION: The Effects of Unleaded Petrol Fumes on Health - 24 Apr 2007 NSW, Australia
Would like some information on petrol fumes and its direct effect on women’s health.
ANSWER: 23 Aug 2007
Elizabeth sends her apologies and hopes you are well. We are a little under-resourced at the moment and it hasn't been possible to respond to you earlier.
It hasn't been possible to get you much information on what could be a wide area that you are interested in. What we have so far is the link to Material Safety Data Sheets for petrol, in this case Caltex petrol which is: http://www.msdsonline.com.au/msds/MainMenu.asp Also some information is available on the general toxicity and the toxicity of inhalation of petrol at the following link which is to a UK organisation the Health Protection Agency http://www.hpa.org.uk/chemicals/compendium/Petrol/acute.htm
Let me know if this has been helpful or if you could prefer to narrow down the search further. Perhaps that way we could try again.
