Why is this important?

Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic Chemicals, such as lead and mercury, can cause harmful effects to the environment and humans alike. However, these data only reflect releases and other waste management activities of chemicals, not whether (or to what degree) the public has been exposed to those chemicals.
