How does TCE affect my health?

No clinical effects on the liver are seen at low level exposures. Since the liver is working to breakdown TCE, high dose exposures will cause an increase in some liver enzymes in the blood. Drinking alcohol increases these effects because the liver works to break down alcohol in a similar way as it breaks down TCE. Exposure to TCE may increase your risk for liver cancer.
