At the Environmental Cancer Research Program at Northeastern University, our mission is to determine the chemicals that cause cancer and develop a test to detect early presence or increase of these carcinogens in humans. For example, you may be concerned about whether your diet, home or occupation involves some exposure to cancer causing agents. Or perhaps, you wonder about the the effects of urban air pollution on your health. We already know that animals can develop cancer when they are exposed to harmful chemicals. Our environment contains millions of chemicals, both natural and synthetic, and scientists ar etrying to determine which ones initiate cancer. It is estimated that up to 90% of cases of cancer have an environmental (noninherited) origin. Our goal is to develop procedures that accurately determine the presence of harmful chemicals in people by testing, in some cases, the cellular genes from just a drop of blood. If successful, such tests would give individuals the opportunity to reduce their exposure before harm has occurred.
From the website of health author M. Sara Rosenthal, Ph.D., this information discusses environmental causes of cancer and primary prevention of cancer. Information is drawn from her book, "Stopping Cancer at the Source."
Behind the glossy image of Kodak's film there lies one of the largest emitters of toxins in the United States. Eastman Kodak, a multinational corporation with headquarters in Rochester, New York is the state's number one manufacturing polluter. Kodak has a long history of environmental violations, contamination of the Rochester community, dumping of hazardous wastes in Kodak Park, and advocacy for the weakening of environmental regulations.
