According to NSW Health, ethylene oxide is a man-made chemical that is primarily used to make anti-freeze and polyester, and used to sterilise medical equipment.
Inhaling this chemical can cause ‘irritation of the eyes, skin and respiratory passes’, which can impact the nervous system and result in headaches, nausea, vomiting, memory loss or numbness.
It is also believed the chemical can increase the risk of some cancers after long-term exposure.
