We Are What We Eat… Presented by Center for Environmental Oncology, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (CEO-UPCI) Rachel Carson Homestead Association Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC Learn about options and choices to improve health, support a healthier environment and to save money! We are all exposed to a complex “stew” of man-made chemicals in our water, in our food, in the air, and in personal care products. The potential for health effects resulting from the accumulation of more than 40 years of environmental pollution by some contaminants draws our attention to the unintended consequences – to our health and the environment – resulting from the synthetic materials we use every day. This series of Healthy Choices Workshops will look at the science and provide you with better options for making healthier decisions in your selection of personal care products, performing home and garden maintenance, reducing contaminants in your food and water. Knowledge is power. Becoming better informed about the products you purchase will help to bring safer products to the marketplace.
