QUESTION: The Effects of Unleaded Petrol Fumes on Health - 24 Apr 2007 NSW, Australia

Would like some information on petrol fumes and its direct effect on women’s health.

Thanks Elizabeth

ANSWER: 23 Aug 2007

Dear Madeline,

Elizabeth sends her apologies and hopes you are well. We are a little under-resourced at the moment and it hasn't been possible to respond to you earlier.

It hasn't been possible to get you much information on what could be a wide area that you are interested in. What we have so far is the link to Material Safety Data Sheets for petrol, in this case Caltex petrol which is: Also some information is available on the general toxicity and the toxicity of inhalation of petrol at the following link which is to a UK organisation the Health Protection Agency

Let me know if this has been helpful or if you could prefer to narrow down the search further. Perhaps that way we could try again.

Best regards,

Patrick Mugo Muraguri
