Legal Responses to Indoor Air Pollution

Synopsis

The underrecognized but highly significant problem of indoor air pollution is examined in this important study that covers the issue from the relative health risks involved to the shortcomings of regulatory and judicial responses. The book focuses largely upon the three best-known pollutants--radon, asbestos, and formaldehyde--exploring their hazards and the tens of thousands of deaths and millions of days of illnesses they cause. The work also synopsizes government action against these pollutants, opportunities for individuals to sue parties for harm, and proposals for government regulation and legislation to effectively protect public health.
