Quick Reference

A common form of pollution with many causes, including leakage from oil or other service station wastes and leaching from landfill sites, industrial waste sites, etc. It is dangerous when contaminants, e.g., dioxins, PCBs, and toxic metals such as lead, mercury, or arsenic, are absorbed and metabolized by food crops and enter the food chains of animals or humans.

Subjects: Public Health and Epidemiology.
