One way EPA scientists help protect public health is by analyzing the health effects that may result from exposure to environmental contaminants. A particular area of interest for our scientists, and for scientists across the U.S. and the world, has been chemicals’ potential to cause various types of cancer.
On January 12, 2015, the Children’s Environmental Health Center and the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai hospital here in New York City will be hosting a symposium entitled “Breast Cancer and the Environment.” The symposium will feature a distinguished panel of speakers who will be discussing current research and what it is saying about the connections between environmental factors and breast cancer risk.
