How many have we done sul-phur?
Sulfur Dioxide is a man made compound that comes from the burning of coal and oil from production processes. It also is occurring naturally through volcanic eruptions. When sulfur dioxide enters into the environment via air it is converted into sulfuric acid, sulfur trioxide, and sulfates. Sulfur dioxide readily dissolves when it comes into contact with water.
Exposure to sulfur dioxide occur when breathing contaminated air. This can occur from living near a production plant that uses sulfur compounds. These compounds can also be absorbed through the skin from contact with contaminated surfaces.
Low level exposure can cause irritation of the nose and throat. High level exposure can cause damage to an individuals lungs and extreme exposure can cause death.
