People throughout Missouri, Illinois, and Kentucky increasingly face exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins in their everyday lives. You don’t have to work in a factory or a lab to be exposed to toxic chemicals. There could be a real risk of inhaling dangerous substances in a home, office, school, public area or even a hospital. Many victims of chemical exposure do not realize that they have been harmed by toxins until months or even years after their exposure. Some victims mistakenly believe their symptoms or illnesses are related to something else.
