We Can't Stop Our Exposure to Toxic Chemicals Until We Rein In the Corporations Releasing Them

Saturday, August 26, 2017

By Lauren Orlando, Rural America In These Times | News Analysis



SNIPPET:

Quote
The tobacco industry's playbook gets bounced from one industry to the next, with the highly remunerative process of seeding doubt enough to perpetuate another generation of exposures and another decade or two of profits.

The issue is not whether or not we own up to the real role that lifestyle factors play in causing cancer.

It is that we understand how the lifestyle excuse is
used to diminish or deny the role played by industry, by social prejudice and by economic disadvantage in perpetuating the circumstances that lead to many cancers and that influence cancer survival rates.

Yet when we raise these issues we are shouted down and we are financially out-gunned by the same corporate interests that benefit from the cancer status quo.

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
