dc.description.abstractThe use of chemicals by society has many benefits but contamination of the environment is an unintended consequence. One example is the organochlorine compound hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH). During the 1980s, when HCH was banned in many countries, the brominated flame retardant, hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD), found increasing use. The persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic characteristics of HBCD are, 30 years later, likely to warrant global action on production and use under the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants. Historical lessons have taught us that we need to control the use of chemicals and programs are in place worldwide in an attempt to do so.en_US
