The chemicals that have been used for more than half a century in India are being found to be dangerous to human health and to the environment, according to a major study.
A review of the most comprehensive assessment of the chemical industry conducted by scientists from India’s Institute of Toxicology and Applied Sciences (ITAS) has found that the chemicals in Indian chemicals have been linked to cancer and respiratory illnesses, as well as causing birth defects and other serious problems.
A toxicology study by the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology and the Institute of Applied Sciences has found chemicals that are being used in India’s industrial chemical industry, such as flame retardants, have been implicated in the deaths of at least 12,000 people in the last three decades.
The chemical industry accounts for nearly a third of India’s total economic output and employs more than 1.5 million people.
The study found that India’s chemicals industry produces more than 2.5 billion tonnes of chemicals annually, and is responsible for nearly two thirds of global emissions of chemicals.
India’s use of chemicals has been in decline since the late 1990s, when India started replacing its coal-fired power plants with more efficient and cleaner-burning gas plants, and switching to nuclear power.
But since 2008, India has been relying on cheap imports from the US, China and Europe.
But the chemicals industry has also been growing, with the latest estimates suggesting that the sector could contribute $500bn to the Indian economy this year.
The research, published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology, found that toxic chemicals used in the manufacturing of household products, such in paints, paints and plastics, were linked to more than 30,000 deaths in India between 1999 and 2010.
In the last 20 years, the use of chemical products for making paints, plastics and other products in India has increased by almost 90 per cent.
The use of flame retardant chemicals, also known as flame-retardant polymers, in paints and plastic has also increased significantly, according the study.
These chemicals are used for making paint, which can be used in a wide range of applications including furniture, carpets, windows, glass and other surfaces.
The chemicals that the Indian chemicals industry uses include polybrominated diphenyl ethers, or PBDEs, a chemical that has been linked with a number of health problems, including leukemia, leukemia and neurological disorders, according a study by Greenpeace.
But it also contains chemicals called 2,3-dichloro-phenylenediamine, or 2,5-dihydro-2,5,7-trimethylenediaminopropane, or DHP, a known neurotoxin, the study found.
These are found in some of India ‘s most common household products: paint, plastics, paints, paper, rubber, rubber and other household products.
But a review of published scientific literature from the period 2000 to 2015 found that these chemicals were not linked to any adverse health effects in humans.
The researchers also found that a large number of the chemicals are found to have been released into the environment through the production of industrial chemicals.
The most toxic chemicals that Indian chemicals companies use are used to make polycarbonate (PP), plastic and rubber products.
These are used in many of the household products sold in India, according in the study, including paints, household products and carpets.
According to the study’s authors, the toxicological assessment is important because it is the first time the Indian government has conducted a comprehensive assessment on the chemicals used by industrial chemicals companies.
India is also one of the world’s largest exporters of pesticides, and it is estimated that India accounts for over a third (32 per cent) of the global pesticide trade.
The report said that the chemical products that India uses are primarily used to manufacture paints, and some of the more toxic chemicals are released into our environment through their production.
The Indian chemicals that India has banned in the country include the carcinogenic 2,2-dimethylbenzene, which has been shown to be a known human carcinogen, and 3-methylhexane methanol, which is known to be carcinogenic to humans.
But India has also banned the use and use of benzene, a toxic compound that is also found in gasoline, brake fluid, nail polish remover, gasoline and diesel fuel.
The government has also restricted the use, manufacture and sale of a wide variety of other chemicals, including arsenic, cyanide, lead and mercury.
The toxicological report found that there was no link between the use or use of any of these chemicals in India and the deaths that occurred during the period from 1999 to 2010.
The IITAS study, however, pointed out that there is no clear evidence that there has been a causal link between a given exposure to a particular chemical and an adverse health effect.
The review found that more than 20 different chemicals in the Indian chemical industry were linked with serious health
