The embryo-damaging effect of alcohol (ethanol) has been well investigated and published in many epidemiological studies. Especially babies from alcoholic women show severe developmental defects. The documented effects are anatomical deformations and especially mental and cognitive disorders. There is no doubt that for developmental effects a no effect level exists. In the case of ethanol at the maximum allowed airborne workplace concentration, no developmental effects can occur. The necessary amount can only be incorporated orally.

Eye respiratory tract, or skin For investigations of dermal irritative properties, various test models are available. The classical OECD guideline is to apply the substance to the freshly shaved skin of a rabbit. This very sensitive skin should represent the behavior of highly sensitive people.
