  • To assess the extent of illness from ingestion of lindane, CDC, with assistance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and state health departments, collected case reports and analyzed data from the Sentinel Event Notification System for Occupational Risks-Pesticides (SENSOR-Pesticides) program and the Toxic Exposure Surveillance System (TESS). (cdc.gov)
  • Also included is reference to lindane as a man made pesticide that has been categorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic pollutant, meaning that it lingers for a long period in the environment, moves up the food chain and is highly toxic to humans and wildlife.

  • In the past few years, over 500 cases of adverse impacts from lindane-containing products have been reported. (prweb.com)
  • Oil-based products may increase the absorption of lindane through your skin and into your bloodstream, increasing the risk of serious side effects. (internetdrugcoupons.com)
  • That way "both the coated and uncoated nanoparticles have been shown to be capable of transforming the lindane into other less harmful products," stressed San Romn. (bio-medicine.org)
  • chemicals
  • For many years two companies located in Bizkaia, Bilbao Chemicals (Barakaldo 1947-1987) and Nexana (Erandio 1952-1982), had been manufacturing lindane and dumping it into the environment with no control whatsoever. (bio-medicine.org)

  • Senior engineer Ann Heil was at the helm of the LACSD research effort and found that after use, lindane shampoos and creams and residue rinsed off in the sink or shower made its way through the sewer to a wastewater treatment plant. (prweb.com)
  • gloves
  • Do not use natural latex gloves because more lindane can go through that kind of glove. (cigna.com)
  • Caregivers applying this product to patients should wear gloves less permeable to Lindane such as nitrile, latex with neoprene or sheer vinyl, and thoroughly clean hands after application. (rxlist.com)
  • Natural latex gloves should be avoided because they are more permeable to Lindane. (rxlist.com)
  • If applying lindane to another person, wear disposable gloves (made of nitrite, latex with neoprene, or sheer vinyl). (internetdrugcoupons.com)
