Acrolein Exposure, Toxicity, and Associated Health Problems

Acrolein is a common chemical to appear on the non-metal chemical profile, the GPL-TOX. Since its addition to this lab test, approximately 80% of people tested have levels of acrolein near or above the 95th percentile. Commonly added to irrigation canals to control algae overgrowth, it is also used in the gas and oil industry as a biocide, and can occur from cigarette smoke. Acrolein is also produced by digestive bacteria, including clostridium. This video discusses exposure sources to acrolein, its toxicity, related health problems, and information about what to look for on the Organic Acids Test when acrolein levels are elevated on the GPL-TOX Profile.
