Further explore several of the environmental agents discussed in the article with the following books:

Chlorinated Organic Compounds in the Environment: Regulatory and Monitoring Assessment

Sub Ramamoorthy and Sita Ramamoorthy (1997)

The information provided in the book can be used in monitoring, impact assessment, and decision-making processes. Toxicity profiles provided for each chemical allow for evaluation of the short- and long-term effects on the environment.

Electric and Magnetic Fields: Invisible Risks?

Leonard A. Sagan (1996)

This book examines a possible source of risk--exposure to the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) around power lines and electrical appliances. Its purpose is to provide accessible information on EMFs, sources and measurements, and laboratory research, as well as to provide a balanced perspective on apparently negative health effects. The author explores the possibility of cancer developing from EMF exposure, as well as the potential effects of exposure on reproductive health and behavior. Electric and Magnetic Fields also has background material on epidemiology and laboratory sciences.

The nine subsequent chapters reflect subject areas that have been emphasized in the scientific literature and that have been of greatest concern to the public health, medical, veterinary, and research communities: namely, diagnosis, epidemiology, waterborne events, prevention and treatment, immunity, biochemistry, cultivation, laboratory animal models, and molecular biology. …
