Hazardous waste in America by Samuel S Epstein( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The statistics on hazardous chemical waste are staggering. Over 85 billion pounds of waste are generated in the United States every year. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that at least 90% of these toxic substances are disposed of improperly and unsafely. There are more than 50,000 dump sites for hazardous wastes in the country, involving every state in the union, and only a few of these sites are monitored to any degree. In Hazardous Waste in America three experts have gone behind the statistics and scare stories to investigate the origins of this “toxic time bomb.” They explain not only what the wastes are, but why our economy produces them, what properties make them dangerous and how they have come to threaten our lives and our environment. -- inside cover (flap text)

Stop breast cancer before it starts by Samuel S Epstein( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With pink buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken, "I'm here for the boobs" t-shirts and coffee cups, and a pink ribbon celebrity dunk tank on The Ellen Degeneres Show, a Mardi Gras culture has arisen around a deadly disease over the last decade. The highly marketed pink ribbon, criticized for being tied to pharmaceutical interests, presents breast cancer as normal and pretty in pink. Yet, the statistics of breast cancer remain the same. Expert on the preventative causes of cancer, Dr. Samuel S. Epstein has been watching the debates around breast cancer for more than four decades. He asks, with all the talk about early detection, mammograms, improved treatment, and the race for the cure, why don't we ever hear about breast cancer prevention? Dr. Epstein knows the substantial research that has directly associated many factors of daily life with the development of the disease. The steps that can be taken to prevent it are often amazingly simple, but rarely make the headlines. Here, the evidence is presented and preventative choices are carefully and accesibly outlined. In presenting this critical information that all Americans should know about, Stop Breast Cancer Before it Starts empowers women to take charge of their health and make a real difference in the fight against cancer"--
