    Hi Mary

    Do you know how to get MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) on
    the chemicals you listed? These sheets will give you some
    idea on the health effects these chemicals can cause.
    Legally they have to be available to employees when chemicals
    are used in the workplace. Note that they have no MSDS
    sheets or research on chemicals when they are mixed. There
    is no research data on long term exposures. If you want to
    find the MSDS on the computer go to google and type
    in "MSDS". Also another good site is New Jersey Occupational
    Health. I hope this helps.
