These easy-to-read fact sheets are intended to provide sound advice about environmental hazards ranging from air pollution to drinking water contaminants. Recognizing that those who may be at the greatest risk may also have limited proficiency in English, we have translated the fact sheets into a number of languages. In addition, we prepared a "purple series" written for persons with limited reading ability. We also placed on our website a large font series of these fact sheets to make it easier to read for those of us with aging eyes.
