1,3-Butadiene

1,3-Butadiene water filter drinking tap water
1,3-Butadiene, we filter that.
1,3-Butadiene is an organic compound. It is a colorless gas that is easily condensed to a liquid. It is important industrially as a monomer in the production of synthetic rubber. The molecule can be viewed as the union of two vinyl groups. Unfortunately, motor vehicle exhaust is a constant source of 1,3-butadiene.  Although 1,3-butadiene breaks down quickly in the atmosphere, it is usually found in ambient air at low levels in urban and suburban areas. 1,3-Butadiene has been found in drinking water and in plastic or rubber food containers. Acute (short-term) exposure to 1,3-butadiene by inhalation in humans results in irritation of the eyes, nasal passages, throat, and lungs.  Epidemiological studies have reported a possible association between 1,3- butadiene exposure and cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Epidemiological studies of workers in rubber plants have shown an association between 1,3-butadiene exposure and increased incidence of leukemia. Animal studies have reported tumors at various sites from 1,3-butadiene exposure.  EPA has classified 1,3- butadiene as carcinogenic to humans by inhalation.
