2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), a contaminant of the herbicide 2,4,5trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T), is extremely toxic (1), although the mechanism of toxicity is not known. Other papers presented at this conference cover the spectrum of environmental and health hazards of chlorinated dibenzodioxins and dibenzofurans. It should suffice to(More)
Formaldehyde (FHO) is a multipurpose chemical that is an eye, nose, throat and skin irritant, sensitizer and allergen, as well as a class 1 human carcinogen. Brazilian hair treatments, containing high levels of FHO (up to 11%), have become regularly used that have the potential to expose clients to toxic levels in excess of current regulatory standards. We(More)
The Southern California Edison Company (SCE) has instituted a series of control strategies designed to minimize human exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in electrical equipment used on its system. This paper describes a method of analyzing PCB risks using conservative estimates of human intake of PCBs originating from accidental spills from(More)
The objective of this study is the estimation of health hazards due to the inhalation of combustion products from accidental mineral oil transformer fires. Calculations of production, dispersion, and subsequent human intake of polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) provide us with exposure estimates. PCDFs are believed to be the principal toxic products of(More)
