Humans are exposed to harmful persistent organic pollutants (POPs) every day. Covering the adverse health effects of various organic chemicals on different organ systems, Effects of Persistent and Bioactive Organic Pollutants on Human Health explores routes of exposure and steps to protect the health of the public, including protection against intake of these chemicals, mechanisms for removal from the body, and regulatory and policy actions to reduce exposure. Highlighting both POPs and emerging POPs, the book provides environmental toxicology researchers with a complete overview of environmental causes of human disease.
