After the recent launch of Breast Caner Action Montreal's interactive Chemical Detective project, BCAM caught up with the two Public Health graduate students, Amy Elefson and Natalie Martin, who helped us make it happen. Chemical Detective provides a step-by-step guide to understanding the environmental toxicants that surround us. This presentation is essential for anyone who wants to know more about reducing toxic exposures in their household, but it's particularly useful for new parents, providing essential tips for recognizing toxic chemicals in our domestic environment: our household cleaners, personal care products, and other items that we use everyday.
Read below for board member Deborah Ostrovsky's conversation with Amy and Natalie as they share their musings on public health, activism and the state of science today.
