From the Environmental Protection
"Ethylene dibromide is extremely toxic to humans... Animal studies indicate that chronic exposure to EDB may result in toxic effects to the liver, kidney and testis... data on men exposed to EDB indicate that long-term exposure can impair reproduction by damaging sperm cells. Animal studies indicate that long-term exposure to EDB increased the incidences of a variety of tumors in rats and mice of both sexes."
EDB can also cause skin irritation, blistering , headache, depression, respiratory difficulties, coughing, collapse and death.
EDB can persist in the atmosphere for approx. 40 days. In water, its half-life ranges from 2.5 to 13.2 years, and in soil it was detected 19 years after it had been applied.
