There are a few studies that have been done directly on coal tar sealants and human health, but many others that either increase our understanding of the concentrations, use, mobility, and environmental effects of coal tar pavement sealants or those that demonstrate the human health effects of PAH. The references are presented below in the following categories:
- Direct Studies of Human Health and Coal Tar Sealcoat
- Human Health Studies of the Effects of PAHs
- Biological and Environmental Impacts of Coal Tar Sealers
- Coal Tar Sealant Concentrations, Use and Mobility
These references serve to inform us of the reasonableness of actions to curtail the use and exposure to coal tar pavement sealers.
