On Our Minds: NPR Reviews New EH Book

© 2012 Jupiterimages Corporation

May 16, 2012. I just read a great article on the NPR website about the new book "Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History." Terry Gross also interviewed the author, Florence Williams, on Fresh Air - there's a link to that on the same page. The caption of the provocative photo on the page sums up the book's subject matter nicely: "Breasts are getting bigger and arriving earlier. They're also attracting chemicals and environmental toxins, which are getting passed along in breast milk." What really made an impression on me was the balanced view that the book's author presents about what we know, what we don't know, and what we can (and can't) do about it on an individual level. This is definitely a book worth adding to our CEEH Resource Library!
