"Environmental carcinogens are responsible for a far greater number of cancers than previously believed -- a fact that suggests eradicating these environmental threats should be a priority for President Obama -- according to the report of a presidential advisory panel.
"The Panel was particularly concerned to find that the true burden of environmentally induced cancer has been grossly underestimated," wrote the authors of the report, "Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk: What We Can Do Now."
"The panel urges you most strongly to use the power of your office to remove the carcinogens and other toxins from our food, water, and air that needlessly increase health care costs, cripple our Nation's productivity, and devastate American lives," the report's authors wrote in a letter to President Obama."
So...not only is all our man-made pollution destroying ecosystems and effecting climate change (Yes, I meant to use the word "effecting" and not "affecting". You can't out-grammar nazi a grammar nazi.), but it's making us all sick. Creating disease in our bodies, more than we knew. That adds up to health care costs. Oh - that's your money! Do you care yet?
