Resumen Little is known about the global disease burden related to chemicals. This literature survey analyzes the known burden related to selected chemicals or their mixtures. In total, 4.9 million deaths (8.3% of total) and 86 million disability-adjusted life years (5.7% of total) were attributable to environmental exposure and management of selected chemicals in 2004. The largest contributors include indoor smoke from solid fuel use, outdoor air pollution and second-hand smoke, with 2.0, 1.2 and 0.6 million deaths respectively. These are followed by occupational particulates, chemicals involved in acute poisonings, and pesticides involved in self-poisonings, with 375,000, 240,000 and 186,000 annual deaths, respectively. Other findings are discussed.
