Cancer rates are still INCREASING. There are many environmental causes of cancer. What should we common people DO about this terrible situation? We have to take responsibility ourselves. The MOST POWERFUL weapon we have is our CHOICE of what products we purchase. In this way we reward the responsible industries, those which produce good, wholesome, safe products and fully label them, and we punish the reckless industries, those which produce products they know are dangerous. Once a critical mass of people start doing this, we will create a major shift in the marketplace toward the good, safe products.
Your source of information to make these powerful, important choices is The Safe Shopper's Bible, by David Steinman and Samuel S. Epstein, M.D.
