Warnings on Chemicals and Cancer

April 28 was the day my first wife died seven years ago from the effects of cancer and radiation treatment. 

It seems appropriate to pass on information that is new about dangers in our environment.

One source is an article about the President's Cancer Panel and a report it is releasing about how chemicals can threaten our bodies. Nicolas D. Kristof of The New York Times says that the panel "is poised to join ranks with the organic food movement": New Alarm Bells About Chemicals and Cancer.

Another article about this report and its message is on the Atlantic site, titled  "President's Panel: 'Eat Organic, Ward Off Cancer.'"

Finally, The New York Times on its website Times Topics also provides information on Bisphenol-a, or BPA, a "commonly used in the production of polycarbonate plastics as well as the epoxy resins that line the inside of most food and beverage cans."

Knowledge is power; let's use it to leverage ourselves a healthier life.
