The Toxicology and Microbiology Division of the Health Effects Research Laboratory (TMD-HERL) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been conducting and sponsoring toxicology research to evaluate the possible adverse health effects of the various disinfectants and their by-products. The article reviews research that has been conducted by the EPA and outside investigators with chlorine dioxide and chlorine and with their reaction by-products. The emphasis of the article will be placed on research results that have become available in the past few years.
