ENVE 471 Jonathan Brate 9/27/11 In this paper I’d like to discuss the use of p-Dichlorobenzene, its effects on people and animals, and how it’s being regulated. P-Dichlorobenzene is mainly used as a bug repellent concentrated toward moths and to cover up the smell of bathrooms and garbage. However, this compound also plays a part in warding off unwanted bugs and fungi from crops and in the manufacture of organic chemicals, plastics, dyes, and pharmaceuticals. This substance is being regulated because it is possible that certain people may develop a case of anemia, they may damage their liver, kidneys, or spleen, and/or changes in a person’s blood may occur. (US EPA) Possible health effects include: Potential Health Effects (MSDS 3) If inhaled: The dust or vapors could irritate the nose and throat. May also cause headache, swelling around the eyes and runny nose. Loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, central nervous system effects, weight loss and liver and kidney damage are all possible symptoms.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
