The Center for Environmental Oncology just released the spring edition of their newsletter, Healthy Choices, Healthy Lives -- and since it covers a range of topics likely to be of interest to Enviroblog readers, I thought I'd post it here [pdf].
Here's a taste of the topics covered. Dr. Donovan's piece on flame retardants is a really interesting read!
What do Chinese rivers, plastic water bottles and chemical flame retardants all have in common?
The latest edition of our acclaimed newsletter, â€œHealthy Choices, Healthy Lives,â€ reportsâ€¦
- Donald Burke, MD, Dean of the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh on Chinaâ€™s growing pollution problem;
- Leslie Davis, President of Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC on new greening initiatives at the hospital;
- Dr. Jonathan Weinkleâ€™s insight on tap water vs. bottled water; and
- Dr. Maryann Donovanâ€™s update on the flame retardant problem.
The Center for Environmental Oncology at University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute is headed up by Dr. Devra Davis, author of The Secret History of the War on Cancer, which details why prevention is the cure.
