Health Effects Notebook for Hazardous Air Pollutants

The fact sheets available on this Web page describe the effects on human health of substances that are defined as hazardous by the 1990 amendments of the Clean Air Act.  These substances include certain volatile organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and radionuclides that present tangible hazard, based on scientific studies of exposure to humans and other mammals.  There is uncertainty in the precise degree of hazard, and readers are cautioned that the fact sheets may be revised as additional data become available.
