Environmental Health Resources

We are exposed to chemicals and radiation every day. Sometimes we cannot control it. But there are many things—like some exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation—that are within our control. We know it can seem overwhelming, but there really are easy things you can do—today and every day—to reduce your risk.

It is important to learn about all these environmental health issues so you can make simple changes in your home that will safeguard your family.

Wireless radiation is only one issue of many important environmental health issues impacting us today. The Environmental Health Trust hopes that you will learn about plastics, cleaning products, clean water, pesticides and sunscreens to start. We can make a difference by exercising our right to choose safer products as a consumer. We can make a difference by sharing environmental health resources and taking action in our community. Education is the key!
