AEGN Toxics, human health and nature Briefing

Toxic chemical pollution underlies many environmental challenges, yet it is generally overlooked: industrial chemicals pervade our culture and the pollution they create is often invisible. The reality is Australians live in a chemical soup, exposed to thousands of toxic chemical emissions from food, water and everyday products, and impacts are difficult to quantify. We have created this briefing to help people who want to understand the science and policy landscape around toxic chemicals, and demystify an area that uses highly technical language.
