Dr. Vincent Cogliano is the scientist responsible for running US EPA's Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS). Dr. Cogliano describes the current state of scientific knowledge on the subject of quantitative cancer risk assessment for persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Few quantitative cancer risk assessments have been produced for POPs. It is not possible to produce a quantitative cancer risk assessment for total POPs exposure imposed by consumption of animal fat.

The only reasonable action government public health agencies have open to them is educating the general public about POPs exposure cancer risk and exposure reduction strategies. This action has not been taken despite the fact that the federal government has been aware of POPs contamination of the food supply since the 1970s. The US government has allowed corporations to dictate silence on the subject of POPs exposure cancer risk. The government health entities must throw off all corporate control and begin immediately to educate the general public on the subject of POPs exposure avoidance via restricting consumption of animal fat.
