Chemicals in various products can be hazardous. It is a complicated field to analyse and regulate because the chemicals are "everywhere" but invisible. The European regulation of chemicals, REACH, is described together with the principles of risk assessment. The book is build on eleven examples of chemicals that has been discussed for years and for which the regulation has been very slow.
