Whether you work in the field of agriculture, construction, industry, manufacturing or medicine, you may be exposed every day to toxic chemicals. Exposure often occurs as a result of intentional or negligent industry practices, including the use of toxic solvents despite other available alternatives or chemical refuse is disposed into the ground which finds its way into the community’s drinking water sources. The use of toxic chemicals typically occur without ample warning or proper protective equipment, resulting in neurological diseases, cancers or even death. Not only are these chemicals used in the workplace, but they are also used in your home.
