San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than the widow of Ricky Perrio, Diana Perrio and people who suffer from Benzene Side Effects. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on July 5th, 2012, the widow of Ricky Perrio, Diana Perrio, filed a lawsuit in Jefferson County District Court (case no. B192-652) alleging her husband developed chronic lymphocytic leukemia and died as a result of his regular exposure to benzene during work at the Port Arthur facilities of the defendants. Defendants are Atlantic Richfield, Beazer East and Equistar GP. Perrio worked for the defendants as a mechanic from 1967 to 1983.
Benzene is a petroleum product, originally manufactured from coal tar that is used as a component in multiple industrial and consumer products. Benzene is also a known human carcinogen based on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in humans, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services National Toxicology Program. In the Report on Carcinogens, Twelfth Edition (2011) it is mentioned that the strongest epidemiological evidence that benzene causes cancer is from several cohort studies in various industries and geographical locations, which found that occupational exposure to benzene increased the risk of mortality from leukemia (mainly acute myelogenous leukemia).
