During the past few months, a spate of unusually outspoken articles on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) has appeared in significant toxicology, endocrinology and environment and health journals. The appearance of one (...)
A major step forward in the discussion and development of policy to regulate chemicals with endocrine disrupting properties occurred last week when the European Commission released an important report, “State of the Art of the (...)
Concern in Europe is mounting about the threats of hazardous chemical contamination and subsequent public health consequences from the unconventional drilling for natural gas. The hydrofracturing of shale rock, or fracking, (...)
In November, Pink Ribbon, the online breast cancer awareness magazine, published a letter on the application of the precautionary principle for known cancer causing chemicals.
Pink Ribbon Magazine aims to ensure that (...)
In (June) 2009, HEAL interviewed Professor Christopher Wild to find out its opinion on the links between cancer and the environment and what evidence is being delivered by the compelling science.
