Why is this useful?

This guide is for community members who are concerned about environmental exposures in their neighborhoods. The information and resources found here will help you take steps to figure out if contamination is affecting the health of members of your community.



This guide covers outdoor pollution in the air, soil, and water in your community. There are other exposures you and your family might experience from the air inside your home (molds, chemicals evaporating from furniture stain treatments and electronics); from the food you eat (pesticides in produce, mercury in fish); from your workplace (hazardous materials and chemicals, biological agents); and from the personal products you use on your body (chemicals in shampoo, hair gel, deodorant, lotions). These exposures and their associated health effects are beyond the scope of this guide.
