Think, for example, about the lies and/or disinformation campaigns waged by the tobacco, lead, asbestos, chemical, and fossil fuel industries. Ideological and corporate influences have resulted in terrible damage. The burden of illness and premature death falls on vast numbers of people globally, especially on the most vulnerable.
Our 1st REPORT AND APPEAL TO OUR FOUNDING DONORS
was released on November 16, 2017. Highlights from this report reflect on continuing impacts from our 2012 Position Statement on Asbestos
. The joint production of a Call for Action on Lead
was launched in August 2015. We proudly announced our 2017 published peer-reviewed article on Challenges to the Census
. The article confirms that, if the census were undermined, the rational basis for allocating resources would be weakened. An upcoming peer-reviewed article addresses the role of epidemiology in firearm violence prevention. Ongoing topics include “gender equity in the profession,” “conflict-of-interest and disclosure,” “climate change,” “e‑Cigarettes,” and “big data.” Under WHAT’S NEW?
on our website, we bring to attention exposés of deceit and suppression of evidence that harm public health.
