Perchlorate related illness

Perchlorates occur naturally in the environment and are also used within the manufacturing industry for the making of airbags, rocket fuel, fireworks and fertilisers. Workers who come into contact with perchlorates are vulnerable to a range of health problems and women of child bearing age are particularly vulnerable.

The use of perchlorates at work can pose a significant risk to employees if they have not been issued with the necessary protective clothing or the necessary training to ensure that the chemical remains safely contained.

The risks of exposure to perchlorates

Thyroid problems are the most noted health problem linked to perchlorates.  The substances destroy the iodine ion in the protein that transports the ion to the thyroid, leading to iodine deficiency. Iodine deficiency is thought to be the main cause of learning difficulties in young children.
