Cancer Causing Chemicals: Methylene Chloride

Methylene chloride most often affects the central nervous system (the brain)
causing headaches, nausea, dizziness, clumsiness, and drowsiness. At very high levels 
it can cause unconsciousness and death. Methylene chloride causes cancer in animals, 
and is regulated as a cancer-causing substance. 
Some of the most common industries and job tasks where methylene chloride is used: 

• construction 
• paint stripping 
• vapor degreasing 
• chemical manufacturing 
• cleaning
Repeated, frequent overexposure to methylene chloride and other solvents over months 
and years can have long-lasting and possibly permanent effects on the nervous system. 
By law, employers must provide a safe and healthy workplace using ventilation and other 
controls, and work practices described in the Cal/OSHA methylene chloride standard. But 
what can Do It Yourself enthusiasts do to prevent exposure when using products containing methylene chloride? Its simple DO NOT USE THEM! Today there are safer options for
