Volatile solvents are routinely used in industrial processes to manufacture consumer products. Air and water pollution are common routes of exposure in both our homes and workplaces. We are also exposed by inhalation or ingestion of car exhaust, paints, glues, adhesives, and lacquer thinners. Overexposure or chronic exposure to volatile solvents damages the central nervous system and causes chemical-driven liver and kidney damage. It also contributes to atrophy of skeletal muscles, loss of coordination, and vision problems.
