Chlorine, Health, and a New Environmental Strategy

Pandora's Poison presents a solution to one of the most insidious environmental problems of our time: the global build-up of toxic chemicals.

These substances—such infamous pollutants as dioxins, PCBs, and DDT, along with thousands of lesser-known hazards—are produced when chlorine gas is used to make plastics, paper, pesticides, and many industrial chemicals.
