'Quote of the day' w. this post: “A woman’s body is (a human being’s) first environment. Whatever contaminants are in a woman’s body find their way into the next generation. I think there is no better argument for the precautionary principle.” – Dr. Sandra Steingraber, author of Living Downstream - An Ecologist Looks at Cancer & the Environment
