New Research On Carcinogenic Chemicals Combinations

A new scientific study just published in the June issue of the journal Carcinogenesis: Integrative Cancer Research suggests that chemicals found in the environment that could be harmless in low doses, have the capacity to become carcinogenic if combined. The research spanned two years, and 174 scientists in 28 countries.

We talk with William Bisson who teaches in the Environmental and Molecular Toxicology department at Oregon State University and a team leader on the study.
