In addition to asbestos, another common cancer-causing agent is benzene. According to the American Cancer Society, benzene is a colorless, flammable liquid that is among the 20 most commonly used chemicals in the United States. While it forms naturally, most benzene exposures result from human activities at work, through the use of household products or inhaling it in the general environment.

Leukemia and Lymphoma Due to Benzene Exposure
Benzene has been linked to cancer, particularly leukemia and other cancers affecting a person’s blood cells. Sometimes cancers can develop quickly after initial exposure, but far more often we see clients whose illnesses manifest years down the road.
Most clients we help were exposed to benzene either at work or out in the community. The major industries that typically use benzene are:
- Rubber manufacturing
- Oil refineries
- Chemical plants
- Other gasoline-related industries
- Manufacturing of lubricants
- Manufacturing of dyes, detergents, drugs and pesticides
In addition to exposure in the workplace, benzene hazards are in our everyday environment and can be found in:
- Cigarette smoke and secondhand smoke
- Contaminated drinking water
- Solvents, paints and art supplies
- Air, especially around gas stations and industrial plants
- Automobile exhaust fumes
- Waste water
