Abstract:

"Ever wondered what all those chemicals on product labels are, what they're used for, and how they may affect your health? Here's a guide that fully clarifies the uses and risks of commonly encountered chemicals and additives." "1,001 Chemicals in Everyday Products provides entries on chemicals found in the home, school, office, garage, and garden products. Substances in cosmetics, food and vitamins, cleaning liquids, gardening products, and car-care products are covered. Extensive attention is given to environmental hazards that have been highly publicized in the news, including pesticides and household exposures to detergents, drugs, paints, ozone, lead, radon, and hair dyes." "Vital details are provided on each chemical in plain language, without scientific jargon, and in a format that makes it easy to find information fast. Providing factual information in minimum space, every compact chemical entry features entry name, products that contain the chemical, uses of the chemical, list of product/chemical synonyms, and graphic symbol that depicts uses of the product." "Product and chemical synonym indexes are included to allow easy cross-referencing." "Users of 1,001 Chemicals in Everyday Products will be fully armed to identify the benefits and hazards of chemicals in products that we use in our daily lives. It is an essential source for everyone who wants to minimize exposure to potentially hazardous substances."--Jacket.
