Sandra Steingraber – The Environmental Life of Children
The brilliant health researcher, cancer survivor, bestselling author of Living Downstream, and the most articulate advocate for a toxic-free environment since Rachel Carson, describes her health battles, motherhood and activism. She shows the environmental links to many cancers (including hers) that the medical establishment refuses to look at. She focuses on the effects even tiny amounts of chemicals can have on the fetus and small children, and challenges our collective failure to address our global ecological unraveling or control toxic chemicals. She has faith that an environmental human rights movement will emerge to usher in a far more conscious era.
This talk was given at the 2008 Bioneers Annual Conference and is part of the Everywoman’s Leadership, Vol. 1 and Ecological Medicine, Vol. 1 Collections.
