NNEWH: women working in particular occupations have an increased risk of developing breast cancer

Plastics workers in the auto industry (Windsor, Ont) were part of the study.“This research supports a growing understanding that when it comes to endocrine disrupting chemicals, even low doses can be dangerous” stated Dayna Nadine Scott, [Osgoode colleague and ] Director of NNEWH. “We are exposed to these chemicals at home, in the workplace and in the environment – it’s time to demand a regulatory response that is integrated and health-protective for everyone.”

As we  noted earlier this year, NNEWH has had all it’s funding cut by the federal government.
