THE QUARTER NOTE
CREOSOTE AND THE RAILROAD
Coal tar creosote is used extensively to preserve crossties on the railroad. Railroad
workers have to handle these heavy wooden ties that are freshly coated with creosote.
Typically, the railroad workers get creosote all over their hands and arms. The
components of creosote are lipophilic in that they are soluble in fatty tissue and are
stored in fatty tissue. They easily penetrate the skin and enter into general circulation
in the body and are carried to critical organs resulting in organ specific mutations and
increased risk of cancer.
