New York State Fairgrounds, Demo Kitchen in the Art and Home Center,
Syracuse, NY USA

The New York State Council on Food Policy has announced that it will
conduct the first in a series of Listening Tour events at the New York
State Fairgrounds in Syracuse.  I have made arrangements to
participate.

This event marks the first time that the people of New York have been
invited to take a role in the creation of food policy.  The approach
of such a standout event is cause for jubilation.  We can be sure that
the governments of America are coming to recognize the importance of
food in matters of public health.  The Listening Tour event offers a
perfect moment to raise the matter of the benefit to public health
that accrues from providing the public with warnings of food
contamination problems.  Empowering individual action to avoid
exposure to food supply contaminants must become a key part of food
policy making.  Environmental health science knowledge makes this all
possible.

I look forward with great excitement to this opportunity to speak on
the value of environmental health science knowledge in decision making
on food.  I will make a five minute oral presentation that focuses on
two issues in which environmental health science illuminates health
protective policy making:  persistent organic pollutants (POPs)
contamination of animal fats and arsenic contamination of rice.

A PDF file for my presentation at the Listening Tour event is available below.
