*Have you been enjoying a walk in the neighborhood and found you have suddenly fallen without realizing why?

*Do you get a numb feeling in the side of your face—and the doctors can’t find the reason?

*Do you get a sudden onset of dizziness or a headache?

*Fabric softeners, like other fragrant products, contain petrochemicals, used in untested combination. These chemicals can adversely affect the central nervous system (CNS)—your brain and spine.

*CNS exposure symptoms include: aphasia, blurred vision, disorientation, dizziness, headaches, hunger memory loss, numbness in face, pain in neck and spine.

*CNS disorders include: Alzheimer’s Disease, Attention Deficit Disorder, Dementia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Seizures, Strokes, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

*If you use fabric softens liquid or sheets STOP
Save the container as evidence—doctors can request analysis.

If made ill by fabric softener used by another person give product name if known. Provide a description of your symptoms.

Take this paper to your doctor to help document your symptoms.

Chemicals Found in Dryer Exhaust and There Toxicology

Chemicals found in fabric softeners by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Reference: Lance Wallace, EPA

Identification of Polar Volatile Organic Compounds in consumer Products and Common Microenvironments, 1991

Compiled by Julia Kendall (1935-1997)
Symptoms of exposure are taken from industry generated Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

Alph-Terpineol-Causes CNS disorders.“highly irritating to mucous membranes.”“Aspiration into the lungs can produce pneumoitis or even fatal edema”.“Can also cause excitement, ataxia (loss of muscular coordination) hypothermia, CNS and respiratory depression and headache”.“Prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact.”

BENZYL ACETATE-Carcinogenic (linked to pancreatic cancer)“From vapors: irritating to eyes and respiratory passages, exciting cough.”“In mice: hyperemia of the lungs.”“Can be absorbed through the skin causing systemic effects.”“Do not flush to sewer.”

BENSYL ALCOHOL-Cause CNS disorders.“irritating to the upper respiratory tract”“headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drop in blood pressure, CNS depression, and death in sever cases due to respiratory failure.”

CAMPHOR-Causes CNS disorders. On EPS’s Hazardous Waste list. Symptoms:“local irritant and CNS stimulant.”“readily absorbed through body tissues”“irritation of eyes, nose and throat”“dizziness, confusion, nausea, twitching muscles and convulsions”“Avoid inhalation of vapors.”

CHLOROFORM-Carcinogenic. On EPA’s Hazardous Waste list.“Avoid contact with eyes, skin, clothing. Do not breathe vapors…Inhalation of vapors may cause headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, irritation of respiratory tract and loss of consciousness.”“Chronic effects of overexposure may include kidney and/or liver damage.”“Medial conditions generally aggravated by exposure: kidney disorders, liver disorders, heart disorders, skin disorders.” Conditions to avoid HEAT

ETHANOL-On EPA Hazardous Waste list. Causes CNS disorders. Symptoms-“fatigue, irritating to eyes and upper respiratory tract even in low concentrations…”“Inhalation of ethanol vapors can have effects similar to those characteristic of ingestion. These include an initial stimulatory effect followed by drowsiness, impaired vision, ataxia, stupor…”

ETHYL ACETATE-Narcotic. On EPA’s Hazardous Waste list.“irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract”…”may cause headache and narcosis (stupor)”…defatting effect on skin and may cause drying and cracking”…”may cause anemia with leukocytosis and damage to liver and kidneys”“wash thoroughly after handling.”

LIMONENE- Carcinogenic.“Prevent its contact with skin or eyes because it is an irritant and sensitizer.”“Always wash thoroughly after using this material and before eating, drinking, applying cosmetics. Do not inhale limonene vapor.”

LINOLOOL-Narcotic. Cause CNS disorders.“respiratory disturbances”…Attracts bees.” In animal test: ataxic gait, reduced spontaneous motor activity and depression…development of respiratory disturbances leading to death.”…”depressed frog heart activity.

PENTANE-Danger—Harmful if inhaled; extremely flammable. Keep away from heat…Avoid breathing vapor.”“Inhalation of vapors may cause headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, and irritation of respiratory tract and loss of consciousness. Repeated inhalation of vapors may cause central nervous system depression. Contact can cause eye irritation. Prolonged exposure may cause dermatitis (skin rash).”

"Warren Hawkins, Director, of, California Air Resources Board.

Has affirmed to me in person that, the above described "chemicals are safe to inhale when released from a "Dryer Exhaust Vent"."


Is that statement a "TESTMENT OF HIS EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE" ? If so he needs to be "FIRED" !

Chemical Attack

The possibility of a widespread chemical attack is relatively unlikely in the United States at the present time because dispersing chemical or biological agents over a very large area is inefficient, pretty hard to do, and because we have better prepared for the possibility of it happening.

While less likely to affect a large geographic area at any one time, any chemical attack using toxic agents is still a very serious deadly threat that could happen. We never know when we might experience a terrorist attack. Chemical and biological agents can be released into the air from an airplane, from an explosive or other device, into a water supply, or by other means.

You may be home, at work or elsewhere when an attack occurs. Remember that fleeing an area is not always the best thing to do. If you are at home, school, or work during a chemical or biological emergency, it may be safer to stay put.

Following the same emergency preparedness plan you have in place for natural disasters and other emergencies and having basic supplies on hand is the first step in your total preparedness plan.

Also take these things into consideration;

1) Be certain your family can contact one another at all times. Write down every family member's telephone numbers for school, work, home, and mobile phones on a blank index card. Include other family member's and neighbor’s numbers. Write down each person’s blood type and any other medical or health issues that you would want an emergency responder or Good Samaritan to know.

Explain to your kids and family members that you want them to carry this index card with them all the time and why. Have them keep one in their backpack and school locker. Everyone else keep one in your wallet or purse. Do this because most of us keep our friends and family’s phone numbers in the address book of our mobile device. If we lost our phone or the battery was dead, most of us wouldn’t remember everyone’s number, especially when we were in need of it the most such as during a chemical attack or other act of terrorism.

2) Program an entry in your mobile phone address book for “ICE”. This stands for “In case of emergency” contact. Emergency personnel know to look at your mobile phone’s address book and contacts for this information if you are in an accident. Program your nearest friend or family member's telephone number. Pick someone who will be most readily available to respond to your needs in case of an emergency.

3) Stay informed. Be sure to have a portable battery powered radio and also watch local television news for safety alerts and situation updates. If safe to do so, communicate with neighbors or others in or near your location.

4) Heed the advice and warnings of police and emergency personnel. Lives can be saved if we follow this advice. Remember that being prepared yourself and reducing the odds that you will need assistance means emergency personnel can devote their efforts to the people who are most in-need during any emergency situation.

5) In case of chemical attack or bioterrorism, have protective masks, plastic sheeting and duct tape to seal doors and windows. Do not go outdoors. Stay in an interior room away from outside walls. Do not let outside air enter your home. Keep doors and windows closed and sealed.

6) Turn off your furnace, air conditioning or other ventilation system, close fireplace dampers and seal around the fireplace opening if possible. Use duct tape to seal the kitchen exhaust fan if it vents outside the home. If you have a natural gas operated clothes dryer, keep the appliance door closed and tape around the door opening. If safe to go outside, tape off the vent at the outside wall.
