A chemical injury can happen at any time to anyone, regardless of age, background, or economic status. It can happen either on the job or in the home, and can affect many members of a community. Such an injury often does not show up immediately but develops over a long period. Often, however, sufferers from chemical exposure are victimized not only by the chemicals but also by a legal system that seems to require complicated and expensive court action. This helpful guide to chemical-injury litigation offers practical strategies that clients and their attorneys can use to better serve their cases. Presenting a clear blueprint of client rights and responsibilities, the book will improve the standard of legal services for both individuals and communities. The guide addresses in detail several important areas of chemical injury and the legal process: defining problems and solutions; examining available resources; cultivating a knowledge of chemical-related diseases and injuries; and facilitating effective attorney-client relationships and case strategies. Leading attorneys contribute case studies and essays offering perspectives on chemical injury and the law.

Presently, there is not a book quite like Get A Whiff Of This. Books have been written about cosmetic ingredients, yet most people are not aware of the serious, harmful health effects of fragrance chemicals due to false advertising, failure to bear warning labels, and lack of media attention. Millions of people are disabled from repeated exposures to these deleterious products. Synthetic fragrances are ubiquitous in the U.S., and avoidance is nearly impossible unless a person remains housebound. Many people are under the false impression that perfumes are derived from flowers and other natural sources. Get A Whiff Of This will educate people and, therefore, give readers the knowledge they need in order to protect their health and the health of their loved ones. Incidents of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), which has become an alarmingly growing epidemic in the U.S., asthma, and central nervous system and neurological disorders are on the rise.

An examination of the awareness of environmental and social justice issues in the former Soviet republics--from the Western-style democracies of the Baltic region to the totalitarian regimes of Central Asia--and the resulting activism in those states. The legacy of environmental catastrophe in the states of the former Soviet Union includes desertification, pollution, and the toxic aftermath of industrial accidents, the most notorious of which was the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. This book examines the development of environmental activism in Russia and the former Soviet republics in response to these problems and its effect on policy and planning. It also shows that because of increasing economic, ethnic, and social inequality in the former Soviet states, debates over environmental justice are beginning to come to the fore. The book explores the varying environmental, social, political, and economic circumstances of these countries--which range from the Western-style democracies of the Baltic states to the totalitarian regimes of Central Asia--and how they affect the ecological, environmental, and public health. Among the topics covered are environmentalism in Russia (including the progressive nature of its laws on environmental protection, which are undermined by overburdened and underpaid law enforcement); the effect of oil wealth on Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan; the role of nationalism in Latvian environmentalism; the struggle of Russia's indigenous peoples for environmental justice; public participation in Estonia's environmental movement; and lack of access to natural capital in Tajikistan. Environmental Justice and Sustainability in the Former Soviet Union makes clear that although fragile transition economies, varying degrees of democratization, and a focus on national security can stymie progress toward "just sustainability," the diverse states of the former Soviet Union are making some progress toward "green" and environmental justice issues separately.

From the vernacular engineering of Latino car design to environmental analysis among rural women to the production of indigenous herbal cures-groups outside the centers of scientific power persistently defy the notion that they are merely passive recipients of technological products and scientific knowledge. This is the first study of how such "outsiders" reinvent consumer products-often in ways that embody critique, resistance, or outright revolt.Contributors: Richard M.

Dr. Riki Ott exposes the profound legacy of the Exxon Valdez oil spill and how readers can help reshape our global energy future. The author chronicles the long-lasting environmental harm to Prince William Sound, Alaska, and investigates the health problems suffered by many cleanup workers. Exxon's spill provided a portal to understanding a startling truth: oil is much more toxic than we previously thought. Sound Truth and Corporate Myth$ frames the larger story of discovery of the truly toxic nature of oil. This book shows how one particular fraction of crude oil, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or PAHs, may well be the new DDT of the 21st century. In 1999, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency listed 22 PAHs in crude oil as "persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) pollutants." Sharing this list of extreme human health hazards are the more commonly known pollutants--mercury, lead, dioxin, PCBs, and DDT. The latter are all highly regulated chemicals and some, such as DDT and PCBs, have been banned in the United States. Sound Truth and Corporate Myth$ traces 15 years of lingering harm to humans and wildlife from the Exxon Valdez oil spill. It reveals how corporate greed, government short-sightedness, and manipulation of the truth and the media have kept the public from learning the deadly nature of PAHs. The author provides relevant information and practical recommendations for people and policy-makers at this critical juncture in the history of civilization. This book will inspire people to reduce their own consumption of fossil fuels and, in so doing, help permanently shift society to a clean energy future.
