Congressman Steve Israel, Sponsor of the Resolution for National Cancer Prevention Day 2-4–13


The Resolution introduced by Representative Steve Israel, Co-Chair of the House Cancer Caucus.

111th Congress, Israel launched an initiative to require full ingredient labeling on household cleaning projects; authored a bill that would take arsenic, a known carcinogen, out of our poultry supply.

Israel said, “There are far too many who have been touched by cancer, both directly or indirectly. Today, on National Cancer Prevention Day, we commit ourselves to prevention and reducing our risks as much as possible through healthy lifestyles and clean environments. Less Cancer has been a true partner in this fight, and I applaud them for that.”
