What are human beings without animals? If all animals ceased to exist, human beings would die of a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the animals will happen also to human beings. . . . All things connect.
Let’s get together and share our information!
The “war on cancer” will not be won until we focus on prevention. We must start by cleaning up our environment. Our government and big corporations will not do this. By sharing information and helping one another, we the people can prevent cancer, birth defects, asthma, neurological damage, dementia, and other illnesses. We can make a difference.

The Radiation and Public Health Project (RPHP) is a nonprofit educational and scientific organization, established by scientists and physicians dedicated to understanding the relationships between low-level, nuclear radiation and public health. The RPHP Study grew out of Jay M. Gould’s book, The Enemy Within: The High Cost of Living Near Nuclear Reactors, which found that women living within 100 miles of nuclear reactors are at greatest risk of dying of breast cancer.
Our current emphasis is on The Tooth Fairy Project, a study of the levels of strontium-90 in baby teeth. By measuring these teeth we are able to determine the extent to which radionuclides are entering our bodies. Once sufficient data is collected, RPHP will evaluate whether this radioactivity raises the risk of cancer.
