Findings from the Environmental and Occupational Causes of Cancer Report
1:00 pm US Eastern Time
This call was a discussion of the findings of the recently released 2007 Edition of Environmental and Occupational Causes of Cancer report, which was commissioned by CHE Cancer. The report shows mounting evidence that unintentional exposures to toxins in our workplaces and environments contribute to the nearly 1.5 million new cases of cancer in the US each year.
The moderator of this call was Michael Lerner, President of Commonweal, and we heard comments from Steve Wing, PhD, Associate Professor of Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Public Health.
