experiment-gad9ec7e41_1920.jpg

We live in a toxic world filled with man-made chemicals, only a few of which have been tested for their potential toxicity. Chemicals in our food, air, water and products we use every day can interfere with normal growth patterns, and cause asthma, birth defects or even cancer. Follow us on Green Street to learn how government agencies are failing to protect public health, and why it's up to every individual to learn how to protect themselves and their families.

Is eating organic really more expensive than fast food? What do those "natural food" labels really mean? Follow us on Green Street to learn how to make better choices at the supermarket (and why you should avoid the inner aisles!).

Our Government Agencies

If you're expecting our government agencies to protect you from toxins in the water we drink, the air we breathe, the food we eat or the consumer products we buy, think again. The revolving door in Washington and the tremendous political power of industry ensures that government agencies meant to protect us have been rendered almost toothless. Follow us on Green Street as we talk with reporters and investigators about what's wrong in Washington.
