Abstract or Description
The motto "Better Living Through Chemistry" has its darker side as we discover the unwanted consequences of some very desirable applications of many pesticides, preservatives, and pharmaceuticals. The hazard that we encounter are in the form of toxicity, carcinogenicity, and mutagenicity. The hazards with their associated risks range from the negligible to substantial increases over standard morbidity and mortality.
