The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created this booklet to help you understand more about some of the most common contaminants found at Superfund sites. This booklet consists of contaminant fact sheets and public health statements prepared by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) and are based on information in ATSDR's technical toxicological profiles. The fact sheets discuss the contaminants' known effects on human health, while acknowledging that in some instances only limited information exists about long-term health effects. For those chemicals for which fact sheets are not available at the time of this document's publication, ATSDR's public health statements are included. The fact sheets summarize potential adverse health effects associated with exposure to hazardous substances. The fact sheets are derived from the first chapter of the ATSDR toxicological profiles, the public health statement, and are written in an easy-to-read format.
