Are Industry and Government Fulfilling Their Responsibilities for Pollution Control?

  • Mitchell R. Zavon
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 2)


The effect on health of environmental pollutants has been difficult to prove in many instances. Many of those concerned with environmental pollution have made allegations unsupported by reliable data in their zeal to redo what they have viewed as a rapidly deteriorating environment. Frustrated by inability to prove an effect on human health, they have given up on man as a focus and have based decisions on the presumed effects on other species or on materials destruction.
