Pollutant Carcinogen Exposure Reduction Education

A National Teleconference

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010, 11:15 am E time

During the past several decades a considerable body of scientific knowledge has accumulated, which describes the relation between exposure to numerous pollutants and cancer. Education of the general public on the subject of pollutant carcinogen exposure reduction via exposure avoidance is very much needed at this time. Such a cancer prevention education project must begin with focus upon: dioxins, dioxin-like compounds, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), bisphenol-A, PBDEs, benzene, and carcinogenic metals. In order to determine how best to set about creating and implementing such an educational project those who have demonstrated an expertise in the fields relevant to such an endeavor join together to participate in a teleconference on the subject of pollutant carcinogen exposure reduction education.

"Recent evidence indicates that almost all cancer is a result of exposure to some environmental agent, not genetics. Thus, identifying the sources of exposure and finding ways to avoid it is the best way to prevent cancer."--Dr. David O. Carpenter, MD, Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, Albany University of the State University of New York

“Most body care products sold in the U.S. contain harmful chemicals, such as parabens, 1,4 dioxane, phthalates (as a component of fragrance), and formaldehyde or formaldehyde-releasing preservatives. The Body Care Aware Project of the Cancer Resource Center aims to educate consumers about the hazards of using certain products as well as provide information and resources so that people can make informed decisions about their purchases.”--Sharon Kaplan, Director of Volunteer Services, Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes

"Currently existing scientific knowledge concerning cancer causation makes it possible to set about providing cancer prevention education to the general public. Numerous exposure avoidance messages can be created from the state of knowledge science. Providing these messages to the public is an extremely important matter of cancer burden reduction. Non-government organizations are now educating on pollutant carcinogen exposure reduction. In order to accomplish the greatest amount of cancer prevention possible, government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute as well as state health departments must join into this educational effort."--Don Hassig, Director, Cancer Action NY
