More support for Sandra Steingraber's ideas

Just as I'm trying to pull together my learning from Sandra Steingraber, new info comes out.  In today's PPH,  3 separate articles addressed the issues.

1) children's learning and behavior (in particular ADD) is linked to pesticides

2) Leigh Donaldson wrote about the President's cancer panel

3) An international study could not conclude that cell phones are safe (or that they are not, in terms of radiation and cancer)

In some ways, we're clearly closing in on a tipping point, but in other ways it's all still so dispirit and not getting through (I used my cell phone only minutes after reading the study, which seems like a bizarre form of cognitive dissonance).

Any thoughts about how we move toward action?
