Decades of industrial activity left their mark hidden in the soil and air. When allowed to come in contact with the human body, serious and often deadly consequences result.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that chemicals are most commonly released from businesses and industries (such as chemical plants and oil refineries), storage tanks, and agricultural facilities. Left undisturbed in the soils, their presence and toxic effects could go unnoticed for decades. However, these toxic substances find their way into our underground water supplies, and can migrate on the surface with runoff waters or flooding.
Household cleaners, fertilizers, pesticides, caustic drain cleaners and chlorine bleach are very common sources of toxic exposure, too.
Toxic exposure can affect nearly every human body system, including the respiratory system, renal system, cardiovascular system, reproductive system, nervous system, immune system, skin, and hepatic system.
