Focus Areas:

  • Food: Our current food system favors industrial farms, synthetic fertilizers & pesticides, and the misuse of antibiotics. This has serious health implications including antibiotic resistance, rising rates of cancer & reproductive health issues and an epidemic of diet-related chronic diseases.
  • Toxics: Hazardous chemmicals present in many of the products we use every day have been linked to increasing burdens of disease of certain cancers, autism and learning disabilities, and infertility.
  • Climate & Energy: Climate change is one of the most pressing public health issues facing us today. Our reliance on fossil fuels like coal contributes not only to climate change but also to acute health problems such as increasing rates of asthma and heart disease
