Health Effects of Environmental Chemicals

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

“Polemical” is the best word to describe the voluminous literature about the health effects of environmental chemicals. The literature includes both lengthy scientific treatises that few read and brief emotional pleas heard by many; books that are one-sided representations and misdefinitions of important single words; and vitriolic attacks on subspecialities and people. Unfortunately, the literature does not include sufficient information to allow us to determine the risk posed by the majority of chemicals in the human environment. In light of this state of knowledge, planners must work with others to constrain potentially dangerous land uses.
