The present study wishes to bring to the attention of the reader the alarming impact that the common benzene molecule has on the environment, with unimaginable implications on the human being. Although it has a great economic importance, being used in many industries, specialists are underlining the fact that benzene is extremely toxic, even in small quantities. In this document there are mentioned, under the form of case studies, the risks that those working in the presence of benzene fumes have to face.
