Osgoode (and FES) colleague Dayna Nadine Scott, editor of the recent “Our Chemical Selves”, will be a panellist at this evening of discussion hosted by the Politics of Evidence Working Group

How is human reproductive health affected by everyday encounters with a group of chemicals known as endocrine disruptors? This evening’s discussion will explore what we know about the endocrine disrupting chemicals in our waters, air, and consumer products, and our relationship to science, government, industry and environmentalism. What does the research tell us? How are they regulated here in Canada?
WHY DON’T WE KNOW MORE?

“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.”
