Reduction in gasoline-related cancer causes by blending ethanol into gasoline in five global cities






“Health Impact of Blending Ethanol into Gasoline in Five Global Cities” University of Illinois at Chicago, Energy Resources Center


Dr. Steffen Mueller, PhD, and others at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Energy Resources Center looked at the effect of biofuel in reducing cancers connected to chemicals such as benzene, benzopyrene, butadiene and formaldehyde in five cities: Beijing, Delhi, Mexico City, Seoul and Tokyo.


“Avoiding these cancers will save several thousand years of potential life lost in each city and an additional tens of millions of dollars of direct health care costs for cancer treatment,” he reports in a summary of the study. “The impact of cancer, however, is much greater than these metrics, as cancer adversely impacts the quality of life, can lead to loss of income and devastates families.”
