In a comment submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), scientists at Silent Spring Institute say the agency’s pesticide safety reviews overlook pesticides that could increase breast cancer risk.
The honor recognizes Dr. Schaider as “a trailblazer" in water quality research, specifically focused on unregulated drinking water contaminants and safeguarding historically marginalized communities from environmental chemical exposures.
Silent Spring scientists advance understanding of how endocrine disrupting chemicals influence breast cancer risk.
New study finds Black women and people with less formal education are more likely to use scented and scent-altering menstrual and intimate care products, which could lead to higher exposures to harmful chemicals.
A look at how community-based participatory research (CBPR) can be an effective tool for protecting women workers from hazardous chemical exposures on the job and creating healthier work environments.
Major cancer centers host a one-day series on the state of the science and the role physicians, nurses, community leaders, and public health practitioners play in engaging on environmental chemicals and cancer risk reduction.
In a comment submitted to EPA, Silent Spring affirms its support for the agency’s new proposed drinking water standard for PFAS chemicals.
New study links the disproportionate siting of sources of PFAS pollution—such as major manufacturers, airports, military bases, wastewater treatment plants, and landfills—near watersheds serving these communities.
New study by Silent Spring Institute and UC Berkeley shows people exposed to multiple chemicals that can cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm.
While colleges responded to the pandemic by investing in public health infrastructure to curb the spread of Covid-19, higher education’s investments in public health should extend to include reducing harmful chemical exposures as well.
