Chloride toxicity is most common in irrigated, dry regions, seacoast areas, and near roads frequently treated with salt in the wintertime. Damage to plants from chlorine gas is less common than damage from other air pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide, fluoride, and ozone Chloride toxicity in critically ill patients: What's the evidence? Anaesth Crit Care Pain Med. 2017 Apr;36(2) :125-130. administration of 0.9% saline could be harmful mainly through high chloride content and that the use of fluid with low chloride content may be preferable in major surgery and intensive care patients. Administration of NaCl. The toxicity of chloride salts depends on the cation present; that of chloride itself is unknown.Although excessive intake of drinking-water containing sodium chloride at concentrationsabove 2.5 g/litre has been reported to produce hypertension (12), this effect is believed to berelated to the sodium ion concentration Exposure to high levels of methylene chloride vapor can cause skin and eye irritation. Prolonged dermal contact with liquid methylene chloride may produce chemical burns. Methylene chloride is absorbed slowly through intact skin but probably not in quantities that cause acute systemic toxicity A higher-than-normal level of chloride in blood is known as hyperchloremia. It is normally not a concern as excess chloride is excreted by the body. However very high intakes of more than 15 g a day for instance, usually in the form of salt, may lead to symptoms such as acid-base (pH) imbalance, fluid retention, and high blood pressure
Toxicity Levels. Chloride has no known toxicity factor at this time, since excess chloride is excreted from the body. A daily intake of more than 14 to 28 grams of salt is considered excessive. Recommended Dietary Allowances. No specific statement of human requirement for chloride has been established Take potassium chloride with a full glass of water. Take potassium chloride with food or just after a meal if this medicine upsets your stomach. Measure liquid medicine with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one Tests involving acute exposure of rats and mice have shown methyl chloride to have moderate acute toxicity. (3) Chronic Effects (Noncancer): No information is available regarding the chronic effects of methyl chloride in humans. (1) Chronic animal studies have shown that the liver, kidney, spleen, and CNS were the target of methyl chloride. In 1974, vinyl chloride (VC) was first reported in the scientific literature to induce angiosarcoma of the liver in animals and humans. Further research has now demonstrated the carcinogenicity of this agent to other organs. Target organs for VC now include the liver, brain, and lung, and probably the lymphohematopoietic system
. High levels of boron, chloride, and sodium in irrigation water are potentially harmful to plants. Boron is by far the most likely element to harm plants irrigated with reclaimed wastewater. Small amounts of boron (i.e. <0.5 mg/kg) are essential for plant growth, however, at only slightly higher concentrations (> 0.5. Chloride toxicity in woody plants initially develops as a marginal necrosis on deciduous leaves (Figure 1) or a tip burn or necrosis on conifer needles (Figure 2). Generally, the higher the foliar chloride concentrations, the more extensive the necrosis becomes Cadmium Chloride is a whitish, crystalline, inorganic compound that forms toxic fumes of cadmium oxides when heated.
