rates of leukemia, particularly acute myeloid leukemia (AML), have been found to be higher in studies of workers exposed to high levels of benzene
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than 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 November 9th, 2012, children of the late Mary Johnson filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Jefferson County District Court (case no. B193-580) alleging their mother died from leukemia as a result of her exposure to benzene containing products at work. 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 carcinogen, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services National Toxicology Program.
In the lawsuit, James, Robert and Richard Johnson claim that their mother worked at Fina’s Port Arthur refinery and as a result of her exposure to benzene products she was diagnosed with leukemia. She died in October 2011.

According to the American Cancer Society, “rates of leukemia, particularly acute myeloid leukemia (AML), have been found to be higher in studies of workers exposed to high levels of benzene, such as those in the chemical, shoemaking, and oil refining industries.”
