Environmentally Induced Illnesses, Ethics, Risk Assessment, and Human Rights

"All persons have the right to freedom from pollution, environmental degradation and activities that adversely affect the environment, threaten life, health, livelihood, well-being or sustainable development within, across or outside national boundaries."
- article 5 of The 1994 Draft Declaration of Human Rights and the Environment

"If the Bill of Rights contains no guarantee that a citizen shall be secure against lethal poisons distributed whether by private individuals or by public officials, it is surely only because our forefathers, despite their considerable wisdom and foresight, could conceive of no such problem."
- Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

"Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person."
- article 3, Universal Declaration of Human Rights
