Toxic Mothballs: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:39 by admin
Mothballs, often containing paradichlorobenzene and naphthalene, can be easily mistaken for candy, or simply tempting for young children to touch and play with. In fact, the colored naphthalene balls resemble gumballs. Recent studies have indicated that both paradichlorobenzene and naphthalene may be linked to illnesses, including cancer.

See a doctor if you or your child have experienced serious health problems because of exposure to toxic mothballs. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
