dc.description.abstractThis book focuses on a group of chemicals, organochlorines, that tops the list of all global and environmental contaminants. The author analyzes the cause and effects of problems associated with producing chlorine-based substances. The book examines organochlorines by looking at major sources, the health impacts on humans and wildlife, and its relation to cancer. The author concludes by suggesting policies and alternatives that can reduce the negative impact of organochlorines.en
