Plastics, cleansers, automobile exhaust-the list of carcinogens in our air, soil, and water seems to go on and on. Featuring an interview with activist Erin Brockovich, this program looks at the environmental dimension of the fight against cancer, presenting expertise from several sources and highlighting ways to reduce the cancer risks in one's surroundings. Case studies include a breast cancer patient from Cape Cod, which some researchers have designated a cancer cluster area, and a retired oil-refinery worker suffering from leukemia after prolonged exposure to benzene. Expert commentary comes from Dr. Anila Jacob, a senior scientist with the Environmental Working Group, and Dr. Maria Baer, a hematologist from the University of Maryland.
