Peter Orris, MD is the author of the World Federation of Public Health Associations' (WFPHA) May 2000 Report, "Persistent Organic Pollutants and Human Health". Over ten years ago scientific knowledge was sufficient to motivate public health leaders from around the world to focus much energy and time on efforts to minimize the release of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) to the environment. In conjunction with these efforts, the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants came into full effect during the decade of the 2000s. Some limited progress has been made on minimization of POPs releases. However, the general public continues to lack any significant awareness of the POPs health hazard constituted by consumption of animal fats all of which are contaminated with POPs at levels that impose more than acceptable disease risk. Since publication of the WFPHA POPs report in 2000, scientific knowledge has expanded greatly on the subject of POPs exposure disease risk. POPs exposure reduction educational outreach to the general public must become a top priority of governmental public health agencies. Dr. Orris agrees that POPs exposure reduction education has been held down by the corporate-government culture.
