This fact sheet is one in a series of summaries about hazardous substances and their health effects. It's important you understand this information because this substance may harm you. The effects of exposure to any hazardous substance depend on the dose, the duration, how you are exposed, personal traits and habits, and whether other chemicals are present.

    Highlights: Exposure to hexachlorobenzene occurs mainly from eating low levels in contaminated food. Much lower exposures can occur from drinking water and breathing air contaminated with hexachlorobenzene.
