Melting glaciers and ice sheets are releasing cancer-causing pollutants into the air and oceans, scientists say.
The long-lasting chemicals get into the food chain and build up in people’s bodies – triggering tumours, heart disease and infertility.
The warning comes in new international study into the links between climate change and a class of man-made toxins called persistent organic pollutants.
The study – due to be published next month – says rising temperatures and more extreme weather are increasing human exposure to pollutants around the world, including in Britain.
