Gasoline is dangerous for your health because it's toxic exposure to gasoline, either through physical contact or inhalation, can cause health problems the effects of gasoline poisoning can harm every major organ it's important to practice and enforce safe gasoline handling to prevent poisoning. Does exposure to petroleum-based lubricating oils and transmission fluids cause concrete floors to disintegrate.
The change in profile of crude oil following a release into the environment is a topic of significant interest, and there is a need to develop analytical methodologies for understanding natural processes which affect related complex mixture profiles one such process is the exposure to sunlight in the following. Health effects from exposure to petroleum products vary depending on the concentration of the substance and the length of time that one is exposed breathing petroleum vapors can cause nervous system effects (such as headache, nausea, and dizziness) and respiratory irritation very high exposure can cause coma and. In addition, products with a high aromatic content, such as benzene and xylene, readily cause systemic affects the most common method of toxicity is ingestion and subsequent aspiration the most common effect of exposure to petroleum hydrocarbons is chemical pneumonitis toxicity varies from product to product.
This study assessed the nephrotoxic effect associated with exposure to gasoline and kerosene vapours in rats, using the levels of urea, creatinine, uric acid, bun, glucose, na+ and cl- in the the intensity of these consequences vary with the quantity and fractions of the petroleum products released into the environment.
