Abstract
A relationship was investigated between leukemia and the production of styrene (100425), butadiene (106990) rubber at the Texas United States Chemical Company (SIC-2822) in Port Neches, Texas, on April 2, 1976. The facility employed 475 workers. Company insurance and medical records revealed eight cases of leukemia among employees. Toxic materials were dumped into blend tanks by hand, housekeeping was lax, workers ate near toxic substances, and machinery was poorly maintained. The author recommends that this facility be the subject of an epidemiological and environmental study.
