"UNION CARBIDE SUPPORTS EPA ACTION ON REPELLENT LINKED TO BIRTH DEFECTS" by Journal of Commerce Staff

"INSECT REPELLENT LINKED TO BIRTH DEFECTS IN TESTS" by The Washington Post:
"Federal Corporation Information - 264849-1", Government of Canada: https://www.ic.gc.ca/app/scr/cc/CorporationsCanada/fdrlCrpDtls.html?corpId=2648491
"Pest Control Products Act R.S.C., 1985, c. P-9", Justice Laws Website, Government of Canada: https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/P-9/page-1.html
Research Facts
Ethylhexanediol was shown by Union Carbide to potentially produce birth defects in animals, including their lungs failing to inflate when they are born. Because of this discovery, products like 6-12 Insect Repellent were taken off the shelves in the 1990s and pregnant and child-bearing age women were urged not to use it.

Research Facts
The donor comes from a long medical family with roots starting in Budapest, Hungary. These items are associated with the first multilingual hospital in Canada, Central Hospital, 333 Sherbourne Street, Toronto. The hospital was founded by her late husband Dr. John Rekai, and his brother Dr. Paul Rekai in 1957. They were immigrant doctors from Hungary who recognised the need for a hospital catering to the growing multilingual, non- English speaking population in 1950s Toronto. The hospital closed in 1996, but there are plans (2006) to reopen it as an ambulatory care center.
