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.
Because of smoke inhalation and exposure to toxic chemicals, I live with the fear of cancer virtually every day.
Celebrating cancer survivors at Relay For Life
