Alliance Supports Legislation to Establish Children's Health Task Force

24 Aug 2012 10:23 AM | Amanda Schwartz (Administrator)
In a letter to Rep. Louise Slaughter, the Alliance offered its support for H.R. 6207, legislation to establish a Task Force on Environmental Health and Safety Risks to Children. At sensitive points in child development, environmental exposures can have especially harmful effects. It is important that we fully understand those effects so that we can treat and prevent them whenever possible. Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease in children and adolescents. Reducing environmental toxins could help reduce these cancer incidences.  We encourage the task force to make pediatric cancer a priority in its activities.
