Health risks from fossil fuels touch almost every aspect of our lives. In addition to vehicle exhaust and industrial emissions, a wide range of everyday products are made from fossil fuel-based chemicals, including cosmetic products, pesticides, and plastics. In this episode, The Fossil Fuel to Breast Cancer Pipeline, we spoke with Dr. Carol Kwiatkowski about the booming plastics industry and what it means for our health. Dr. Kwiatkowski previously served as the Executive Director of the Endocrine Disruption Exchange, TEDX and now serves as the Science and Policy Senior Associate at the Green Science Policy Institute. She is also an Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University. Our conversation explores the current boom in plastics production and connects the dots with the breast cancer crisis.
