Chemicals are everywhere! Routine items such as hair spray, makeup, air fresheners, cleaners, and even many food additives are based on chemicals.
While most chemicals we use are safe, misuse can cause severe reactions such as immediate or delayed illness, chronic disease (especially cancer), organ failure, and even death. This page provides basic information about how chemicals are handled here at Nazareth College.
