QUESTION: The effects of Tetraethyl Lead, 10 May 2006, Kentucky
I was wondering if there is any evidence to suggest that tetraethyl lead causes any abnormalities in color vision as a result of interaction with the visual cortex? If the answer is yes, I was wondering if you knew if it would be a loss of blue-yellow like over exposure to toluene or some other color anomaly?

I will also send an email to the world's only manufacturer of tetraethyl lead and inquire about it. Should they send any reply, I'll forward it to you.
