This report is a compilation of information on chemical contaminants resulting from environmental pollution and found in nonoccupationally exposed U.S. residents. Listed in tabular form for each of approximately 100 elements or compounds are: the tissue the compound was found in; the range and mean or median of concentration; the number of cases; the analytical methods used for detection, identification, and quantitation; the bibliographic reference; source and route of entry of the contaminant into the environment and into man; epidemiological and demographic information; and other pertinent comments. Literature coverage goes back 30 years with special attention to the past 10 to 15 years. About 400 references are cited. Some substances which are not necessarily contaminants are included in the report for scientific interest and to establish baselines.
"May 1980." Final. Prepared by the Information Division of the Oak Ridge National Research Laboratory for the Health Effects Research Laboratory, Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Includes bibliographical references (p. 236-261). Photocopy. Microfiche.
