Despite the fact that Congress banned the manufacture, sale and use of PCBs in the United States in 1976, PCBs remain in place in many schools and other buildings that were constructed before 1976. The ban was based on evidence of widespread environmental contamination and PCBs’ association with cancers and other serious health effects.
In addition, the EPA warns that PCBs may cause harm to the nervous system, the immune system, the reproductive system and the endocrine system. In fact, some school teachers have voiced their concern that their thyroid cancer may be due to the school’s elevated PCB levels.
