We Are All Biologically Embedded

Feb 16, 2017—

Given the grave concerns about scientific research and health-protective regulations being sidelined for political reasons in the US right now, I'm finding it hard to see the forest for the trees. Instead I feel I'm racing through a massive forest trying to protect one tree before it's cut down, only to find that the next 100 trees have already been decimated. I know I'm not alone in this.  . . .


A Case Study: Tapping the Bioinitiative Website

Feb 15, 2017—

This post will introduce our readers to the BioInitiative website, which makes publications on electromagnetic fields (EMF) and radiofrequency radiation (RF) on health topics accessible. The information is set up to allow users to integrate the EMF and RF information on health into their own practices. I hope other CHE groups will begin to consider how EMF and RF studies, along with other important environmental contaminants, can shape our views  . . .


Keeping the Focus on Science in State Policy

Jan 30, 2017—

As the position of science in policy becomes unclear at the national level, some state officials are taking a stance to ensure policy is informed by solid scientific facts. Listen to Ira Flatow speak with science reporters and California Governor Jerry Brown on how states are taking the lead on issues such as energy policies and climate change on Science Friday. Listen here.


Epigenetics and Environmental Health: A Short Educational Video

Jan 19, 2017—

EpigeneticVideoScreenShotOperating through epigenetic mechanisms, environmental exposures can get under our skin and affect our health. As new research comes forward shedding light on how the environment affects our epigenome, translating these findings to the broader public has been challenging.  . . .
