<I'm not aware of any problems with creosote.>  <K9OF>

Creosote is a Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon that includes phenols and 

(The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that 
coal tar creosote is probably carcinogenic to humans. The EPA has also 
determined that coal tar creosote is a probable human carcinogen.)

Power companies have not used creosote treated poles in my area for many years 
due to the carcinogenic nature of them.
