"UNION CARBIDE SUPPORTS EPA ACTION ON REPELLENT LINKED TO BIRTH DEFECTS" by Journal of Commerce Staff
Aug 28, 1991 8:00PM EDT: https://www.joc.com/union-carbide-supports-epa-action-repellent-linked-birth-defects_19910828.html
"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.
