Electronic Waste Seminar report
Most consumers are unaware of the toxic materials in the products they rely on for word processing, data management, and access to the internet, as well as for electronic games.

In addition, new evidence is emerging that computer recyclers have high levels of dangerous chemicals in their blood.
