Janette Sherman (July 10, 1930 – November 7, 2019) was an American physician, toxicologist, author, and activist. She is known for her work related to pesticides, nuclear radiation, birth defects, breast cancer, and illnesses caused by toxins in homes and is considered a pioneer in the field of occupational and environmental health. Sherman was an expert witness or consultant in 5,000 workers compensation cases about deadly chemicals, contaminated water, and toxic pesticides. In the 1970s, during her practice of internal medicine in Detroit, she recognized common profiles in patients that became the basis of a campaign against, lawsuits regarding, and clinical research that established the occupational source of illnesses among her patients in the automobile industry and led to the development of regulations for greater protection of the workers and the banning of certain chemicals from the workplace. Among the largest collections of medical-legal files in the United States, her records are preserved at the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.
She had worked as an oncology professor at Wayne State University.
