Benzene is a dangerous chemical that can cause cancer and a wide variety of other health problems. Most people are exposed to it at work, as it is one of the most highly used chemicals in the U.S., but people can also be exposed in their homes and their communities.
Benzene is a clear liquid that is often used as a solvent. It naturally occurs in crude oil. Most people who are exposed to benzene are exposed to the fumes when it evaporates, but exposure to the liquid form also happens in industrial settings.
