Overview

Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk: What We Can Do Now: 2008-2009 Annual Report President's Cancer Panel by LaSalle D. Leffall Jr., Margaret L. Kripke

The statistics are staggering: this year, 1.5 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer—and more than 550,000 will die from the disease. One underlying cause of these high numbers may be the failure of the US government to regulate toxic substances. The President’s Cancer Panel Report examines the risks posed by the chemicals in our environment, and offers suggestions on what we can do to improve public health and safety. In the strongest words, it urges the President to “use the power of your office to remove the carcinogens and other toxins from our food, water, and air that needlessly increase health care costs, cripple our Nation’s productivity, and devastate American lives.”
