Avoidable Exposures: Work & Environment

Fighting for a safer environment at home, in the community, and at work

Scientific data show many pollutants cause cancer in animal studies. Tests of toxicities in humans are unethical, so precautionary avoidance of pollutants is the safest policy. American health activists are encouraging legislators to bring U. S. policies up to European standards of workplace and environmental safety. In the United States, manufacturers still fight against costly pollution regulations. Citizens fight for regulations. You can learn what pollutants to guard against. Become an informed citizen.

Pollutants to Avoid
Polluters who expose workers and communities to cancer-causing toxins can eliminate unhealthy emissions. If you are at risk for exposure, you can find the political support you need to bring about positive changes.
