Cancer from the kitchen

Dr. Philip Landrigan of Mount Sinai, believes that the increase in cancer diagnosis could be a result of what people and what they are exposed to. It is a well-known fact that the longer a woman has a mentrual cycle, the more at risk for breast cancer she is. A number of studies have linked early puberty to pesticides, P.C.B’s and other chemicals. More evidence points to endocrine disruptors which can be found in certain plastics and cosmetics. Representative Louise Slaughter, introduced legislation to monitor these endocrine disruptors.

I think that having toxins in food and cosmetics is a huge ethical issue. This effects people’s health and the legislation should be passed that monitors this. The fact that people in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer and other diseases at a much greater rate than other countries such as Japan is a big issue.
