Environmental Health Trust educates individuals, health professionals and communities about controllable environmental health risks and policy changes needed to reduce those risks. Past multi-media projects include: local and national campaigns to ban smoking and asbestos, exploring what factors lie behind puzzlingly high rates of fibroid tumors, breast cancer and endometriosis in young African American women, and building environmental wellness programs in Wyoming and Pennsylvania to address the environmental impacts of energy development, the built environment and radon. Currently, EHT focuses on raising awareness on the negative impacts of unsafe cell phone use and performing cutting edge research on cell phone radiation.
Environmental Health Trust was created with the goal of promoting health and preventing disease one person, one community and one nation at a time. Capitalizing on growing public interest in Devra Davis’ popular books, When Smoke Ran Like Water, a National Book Award Finalist, and The Secret History of the War on Cancer, and Disconnect–the truth about cellphone radiation, what industry has done to hide it and how to protect your family, EHT is creating trans media platforms that provide clear, science-based information to prevent environmentally based disease and promote health. We work with businesses, universities, and schools at all levels, to create entertaining and informative materials on cellphone risks and ways to reduce them.
