        Unintended Chemical Exposures

        In this interactive slideshow produced for Teacher's Domain, learn why health officials are concerned about the safety of some of the chemicals contained in products we use and foods we consume every day. The slideshow features images of common items accompanied by descriptions of the type or class of chemical they contain: phthalates, PCBs, BPA, PBDEs, organochlorine pesticides, lead, or cadmium. The descriptions explain why scientists think these chemicals may be toxic, and detail their known or suspected health effects in children and adults.
