What are the effects of breathing sewer gas for long periods of time?

Dr Thomas C. Hughes
Long term inhalation of sewer gas can lead to multiple symptoms including fatigue, loss of appetite, headaches, irritability, poor memory and dizziness.
Once not exposed to it however the effects are likely to wear off within a few weeks.
Of course breathing high concentrations of sewer gas can cause sudden death too.
