ABSTRACT
The article examines the acute health effects of high exposure to organic solvents. It defines solvents as a liquid that is capable of dissolving, suspending and extracting other materials without chemical change to the material or solvent. As stated in the article, organic solvents are widely used in various industries including in paints, pharmaceuticals, degreasants, and adhesives. Moreover, over exposure to organic solvents can cause headache, dizziness, and light-headedness that will lead to unconsciousness, seizures, and death.
