US Today reported this week on a study by the Natural Resources Defense Council in the US which identified possible “disease clusters” in various US states.
Disease clusters are disease incidences that are higher then national averages and cannot be due to chance along. Among the conditions mentioned were MS, cancer, ALS and various birth defects.
The purpose of the report is to look more closely at the link between environmental toxins and these increased disease incidence. You can find the US Today article here.
The evidence for the impact of everyday chemicals on our health continues to climb, as does public interest. If you‘d like learn more, keep your calendar open on Friday, May 13th, 7-9PM. We’ll be welcoming environmental medicine expert (and great speaker!) Dr. Walter Crinnion, author of Clean, Green and Lean to the Gayety Theatre in Collingwood.
