Project Description

The Childhood Cancer Prevention Initiative is a collaborative effort to improve children’s health by widely sharing the evidence about the impacts of toxic chemicals on children, as well as opportunities for preventing childhood cancer by removing toxic chemicals from products and environments where children live, learn and play.

This cross-sector approach is imperative to reduce the use and emissions of toxic chemicals at a time when rates of new cancers in children are climbing, increasing 34% from 1975 and remains the leading cause of death by disease in children 1-19 in the United States.

Together, we are engaging scientists and health professionals to review and interpret research; help manufacturers and retailers drive a shift in business practices; and encourage elected officials to implement responsible state and federal policies.

We’re calling for a nationwide effort to address preventable childhood cancers.
