Abstract
he health gains from risk reduction with regard to chemical health hazards have so far been most evident in the occupational setting. Development with regard to analytical and epidemiological methods, and possibilities to measure discrete effects, do however indicate health effects also at low levels of exposure, relevant for the general environment. Efficient risk reduction in the general, and even domestic, environment is possible as illustrated by the reduced exposure to tobacco smoke. Current exposures in Sweden to radon, mercury, cadmium, lead, PCBs, dioxins, and other persistent organic pollutants, affect diseases of major concern for public health like cancer, reproductive effects, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis.
