  Substance Attributes


  • Known Human Carcinogen

    This is a serious nasty substance. Exposure to this substance leads to cancer in Humans. Exercise extreme caution with this substance, explore your exposure routes and very seriously consider complete avoidance. See further details under Toxins.

  • Metabolic Interference or Disruption

    Interferes with human metabolism. This can be a very serious thing. Some of these interference mechanics are well established. However, often long term effects and health consequences remain largely unknown. Additionally an emerging area of concern and one that is not currently studied, is the combined synergistic effects these metabolically disrupting chemicals have on human health.


    Metabolic interference happens when the substance produces highly reactive and often damaging intermediates during detoxification or when the substance binds to specific enzymes, important structural groups on molecules, receptors and membranes or targets DNA or mimics key nutrients.

  • Toxic to Bees

    Bees pollinate plants. No pollination no plants. No plants no food. We go hungry or starve.

These attributes are ONLY based on peer-reviewed evidence. See link to Data Sources below. Everyone benefits from knowing this stuff. Please Share.




  Health Associations

Mostly focused on Health Implications of Long Term Exposure to this substance

  • SYMPTOMS:
  • POSSIBLE HEALTH CONSEQUENCES: No adverse health effects attributable to clofentezine were detecte during medical surveillance between 1985 and 2004 in workers at a plant manufacturing clofentezine. The medical examination included an extensive physical examination (including height, body weight, skin, ear, nose and throat, and respiratory, nervous, alimentary, reticulo-endothelial and cardiovascular systems, and locomotion) and specific tests for blood pressure and vision. The examination also included tests for hearing, lung function, urine analysis and blood tests when these were considered appropriate. (Makhteshim Agan Industries Ltd, 2004). However, there is an increase of incidences of thyroid adenomas, adenocarcinomas, thyroid hyperplasia, agglomeration of colloid and thyroid hormones in rats receiving prolonged treatment of high dose of clofentezine. |
  • ACTION OF TOXIN:
  • TOXIN SITES OF ACTION IN CELL: "Membrane"
  • Additional Exposure Routes: This is a man-made compound that is used as a pesticide.
