What Causes Acute Myeloid Leukemia?
The most common cause of acute myeloid leukemia is previous exposure to toxic chemicals and carcinogenic substances like benzene. Benzene was often used as a base material in products such as solvents, detergents, degreasers, lubricants, inks, glues, plastics, rubbers, pesticides, paints, coatings, polishes, and thinners. Gasoline contains dangerous levels of benzene. Workers who participated in the manufacture of these products are at an increased risk for AML.
Benzene exposure is also common among individuals who work around petroleum based products, such as fuels and paints. Therefore, these workers are also at an increased risk for developing AML
When a worker is diagnosed with AML due to this type of long term exposure, product manufacturers, property owners, and employers whose negligence contributed to these injuries, may be held liable.
