EWG’s Annual Earth Dinner in San Francisco celebrates EWG's achievements in shaping environmental policy, protecting consumers against toxic exposures, and providing the information needed to protect you and your family's health.
Our dinner this year is very special, as we will be revealing groundbreaking new work on how we think of chemicals and cancer, and introduce a powerful new way of thinking about prevention.
One in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer, yet nearly half of all cancers are preventable. Along with genetics, diet, lifestyle and viruses, exposures to toxic chemicals clearly contribute to this epidemic.
It’s time to rethink how we talk about cancer.
