A large number of hazardous compounds have been used in the past, and many still persist at present with harmful effects on environmental and human health. Although some of these compounds have already been banned, their residues and fate persist in the environment, which raises a constant concern for public health.
The aim of this Special Issue is to publish original research and review articles focused on the effects of hazardous compounds used in the past (e.g., POPs, chromated copper arsenate) whose residues still persist today, affecting public health. Emphasis on in vitro cell-based systems, lab animals, and humans are considered. Monitoring studies as well as reports on new and innovative strategies for their treatment aiming at a more sustainable environment are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
