>From my personal experience I would say its more attributed to being 40 than 
xylene exposure.  I've been out of the lab for 3 years, 40 for almost 1 year. 
 Memory was sharper when I was in the lab.  
Now the mood swings, can we blame THAT on the xylene?  (Maybe not)

<< Hi all,
 I talked with a Histotechnologist in Chicago yesterday who asked me if
 I knew of any memory loss trends in Histology labs anywhere. There are
 2 ladies in this lab who are in their 40's and have slight exposure to
 xylene. The levels have been monitored and are within OSHA standards.
 They are both experiencing memory loss. 
 She wondered if it could be the xylene or if that's part of growing
 into the age 40 bracket. >>
