Polychlorinated biphenyls are manufactured organic chemicals, which are widely prevalent in the environment. They are odorless, tasteless and can also be found in the food chain, thus causing numerous harmful health effects, from cancer to critical systems damage.
Until 1977, PCBs have been extensively manufactured in the U.S. and used as insulating materials, coolants and lubricants in transformers, capacitors, electrical appliances and old fluorescent lighting fixtures.
However, disposal of PCBs has been neglected for many years, thus being responsible for the exposure of countless individuals. Prolonged exposure is accountable for dermatologic conditions, hepatic damage and respiratory conditions and entails negative reproductive and developmental effects as well.
