POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS (PCBs), Sydney Baulkham hills
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a set of persistent organic chemicals that are known or suspected to cause a wide range of health effects. There is clear evidence that PCBs cause cancer in animals, and they are considered probable human carcinogens [U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 1996]. Human and animal data provide evidence that PCBs have significant toxic effects, including effects on the immune system, the reproductive system, the nervous system, and the endocrine system. Production of PCBs was halted in the United States in 1977; however, their persistence in the environment and tendency to bio-accumulate have been well documented [Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) 2000].
