Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences, produces ToxFAQs™ which is a series of summaries about hazardous substances. Information for this series is excerpted from the ATSDR Toxicological Profiles. Each fact sheet serves as a quick and easy to understand guide.

Answers are provided to the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about exposure to hazardous substances found around hazardous waste sites and the effects of exposure on human health. These include what the chemical is; what happens when the chemical enters the environment; how you might be exposed; how it might affect your health; how likely is the chemical to cause cancer; and how can you reduce exposure to the chemical.
