EPA (Air Toxics): Toluene. (2012, July). Revised in 2012, this page summarizes the risk assessment information referenced in IRIS, includes a graphical comparison of exposure limit recommendations and notes, "Chronic inhalation exposure of humans to toluene also causes irritation of the upper respiratory tract and eyes, sore throat, dizziness, and headache. Human studies have reported developmental effects, such as CNS dysfunction, attention deficits, and minor craniofacial and limb anomalies, in the children of pregnant women exposed to high levels of toluene or mixed solvents by inhalation."
