Chronic Effects on Humans
May affect genetic material (mutagenic)
Special Remarks on other Acute Potential Health Effects:
Toxic Effects on Humans Skin: May cause skin irritation. It may be absorbed through broken skin.
Eyes: May cause eye irritation.
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation and cause sneezing, coughing, hypersensitivity and other
symptoms similar to ingestion.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. It is a narcotic. It may cause nausea, stomach pain, dry mouth, and vomiting. It
may affect behavior/central nervous system, cardiovascular system, urinary system, brain, liver, blood. Other
adverse health effects may include: fast heartbeat, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure, irregular heart
beat, bruising, skin rash, fever, sweating, loss of appetite, uncontrolled movements, joint pain, nervousness,
dizziness, sleepiness, agitiation, insomnia, confusion, tremors, muscle twitching, delirium, hallucinations, sense of
