homo toxicus

Watched the most amazing documentary on CBC the other night called Homo Toxicus (website for documentary here: http://www.homotoxicus.com/english/index.htm).

My brain boggles. To quote from CarolePoliquin:

A global-wide experiment is in progress, and we are the guinea pigs.

Everyday, tons of chemicals are released into the environment, without ever knowing how toxic they are in the long term to the living organisms. Moreover: the majority of the 100 000 molecules developed since the World War II which are used in daily products have never been tested…

This just confirms my belief that we are causing cancer. At the World Conference on Breast Cancer last year, I heard that less than 2% of all monies raised for cancer research goes to researching preventive measures. What is wrong with that picture???
