We share Elizabeth Whelan’s concern that the public be properly informed about the risks posed to their health by their exposure to chemicals that cause cancer, and that governmental regulatory policies concern themselves first and foremost with those cancer risks the reduction of which will result in the greatest improvement in public health. Where we clearly differ, however, is on the interpretation of the “facts” that underpin the government’s current regulatory approach and the “impact” of this approach on the reduction in future cancer deaths.
