Benzene occurs in many substances that we use or come in contact with in
our daily lives. It is a colorless and sweet smelling chemical which is
highly flammable and evaporates quickly. Low levels can be found in the
outside air and comes from cigarette smoke, motor vehicle exhaust, gasoline
and industrial emissions. Detergents, glue, paint, and other household
solvents can cause a buildup of benzene within closed areas such as homes
