The International Chemical Secretariat is a non-profit organisation dedicated to work towards a toxic-free environment. In order to achieve this, the Secretariat promotes the implementation of precautionary perspectives into international chemicals policies and practices. More specifically, we keep ourselves informed about the latest and most progressive research and initiatives in the area of chemicals. We distribute this information to other stakeholders, primarily politicians and civil servants, industry and environmental NGOs, aiming to build capacity and strengthen protection of human health and the environment in chemicals regulation around the world. We have continuous dialogues with the stakeholders through meetings, seminars, workshops, newsletters, networks and IT. We also work to create networks and to be a resource for NGOs in this field.

Mesothelioma is a terminal cancer of the lung and abdomen, and it requires more specialized treatment than other cancers of the lung. Mesothelioma is a direct result of exposure to asbestos fibers.
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.
