HWP - Health & Well Being Program Series
Boost Your Health series 2012 - Chemical Confusion
|The public is confused. And often so are politicians. Almost every day we wake up to some new study claiming that yet another contaminant has been found in our environment that constitutes a risk to public health. Bisphenol A, phthalates, parabens and a host of other chemicals appear with great regularity in media reports. It is more important than ever to provide a proper perspective on such issues. Dr. Joe Schwarcz, PhD, Director, McGill Office for Science and Society, will do just that! A scientific, rather than emotional, evaluation of the risk-benefit ratio can go a long way towards clearing up the public's confusion and can help provide the framework for regulations.|
