Reforming the Toxic Substances Act (TSCA)

The following link to the Physician’s for Social Responsibility (PSR) Environmental Health Policy Institute contains statements by Dr. Georges Benjamin for APHA and other key leaders in the field about reforming the Toxic Substances and Control Act (TSCA).  Healthcare professionals and public health advocates across the country are speaking out about the harmful role that toxic chemicals play in our lives, and the need for a robust regulatory strategy to address them.
