Teaching Unit: "Better Living Through Chemistry?"

The materials provided below were developed from a workshop titled "Toxic Environments/Toxic Bodies," which took place at ASEH's Baton Rouge conference in March 2007. They include a transcript of the workshop and two teaching units: one for undergraduate students and one for high school students.
