Listen: Chemical exposure and  breast cancer risk

Researchers at Silent Spring Institute recently published a study linking more than 900 common, everyday chemicals to increased breast cancer risk.

Environmental Health News (EHN) reporter Kristina Marusic covered the study’s findings and recently joined The Allegheny Front to discuss what the study means for anyone concerned about breast cancer risk.

“Ideally we’d do a better job of regulating these chemicals so we can all just buy stuff and not have to worry about this,” Marusic told The Allegheny Front’s Kara Holsopple during the interview. “In the meantime, there are some really good resources that can help us avoid chemicals that might raise our cancer risk.”
