The report on the health effects of benzene assesses the teratogenicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and hematopoietic effects from benzene germane to low level exposure. Epidemiological data strongly indicate that benzene is a human leukemogen although no animal models have been developed. This is one of three documents which will be used by EPA's Office of Air and Waste Management, and by the Administrator, to determine what actions, if any, should be taken against benzene under the Clean Air Act.
