At the Society, we believe in the importance of Canada-wide human biomonitoring programs and that they should be maintained to track and analyze our exposure to harmful chemicals over time.
Human biomonitoring studies
Human biomonitoring identifies and measures chemicals that have built up in our bodies over time as a result of environmental exposure. Scientists use blood, hair, urine, breast milk or other tissue samples to test for the presence of specific chemicals in our bodies.
My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
Help for smokers trying to quit
It’s okay to need help to quit smoking. The Canadian Cancer Society is here to support people who are ready to quit and even those people who aren’t ready.
