“How safe is our food? The number of chemicals in use is far outpacing scientific analysis…there are between 60-thousand and 70-thousand chemicals produced and used commercially, worldwide. Of those, there is only toxicity information available for about 14-thousand, and only fifty-five hundred have been analyzed to determine whether they cause cancer. Add to this, between 700 and 1,000 new chemicals coming to market every year. The workload is much higher than toxicologists can handle.”
— Dr. Laurie Chan, toxicologist and UNBC professor
Overview: The founder of Chemical-Free-Life.org began researching the link between synthetic and industrialized food chemicals and adverse reactions back in the late 1980‘s. Throughout that time Dr. Pam has published journal articles and books, presented at scientific and professional conferences, and designed and conducted seminars and workshops, training clients and the general public about chemicals of concern in our food and products and their link with adverse health consequences.
More recently she expanded her public education efforts to produce FATAL, the Food Additives to Avoid Listing guide for consumers. The additives listing guide is part of CFL’s science-based user-friendly book designed to help consumers avoid potentially harmful chemicals of concern in their food and the adverse symptoms that have been associated with them.
Training/Consulting: Where her work with CFL is concerned, Dr. Pam views helping clients to live full lives free of unwanted chemicals of concern and the adverse reactions associated with them as her most important objective. Science-based and user-friendly, her one-on-one, customized training and consulting programs offer an interesting, engaging, challenging journey to going clean. In addition to effective methods and strategies for significantly reducing the amount of potentially harmful chemicals that enter your body, the programs offer easy, realistic and practical solutions and alternatives.
Research: Dr. Pam and her fellow scientific researchers at Chemical-Free-Life.org each have on average over 25 years experience using survey analysis, observational studies, focus groups, meta-analysis and other methodologies to study the link between potentially problematic chemicals of concern and consumer perceptions and behavior, public health issues, and subsequent economic and social consequences. They also have experience designing and conducting scientific research studies for nonprofit organizations advocating for change in synthetic and industrialized chemicals in the food, personal care products, pet products, household products, and general environment. Expertise includes research design, survey development, data collection, statistical analyses, and reporting (including user-friendly executive summaries and press releases).
Public education: Chemical-Free-Life.org’s public education outreach efforts include both public and professional seminars, webinars, workshops, conferences, and special event tabling. CFL’s popular blog offers visitors user-friendly overviews of the latest scientific findings on chemicals of concern in our food, water, personal care and home care products and greater environment. And the Chemical-Free-Life.org radio show offers listeners the inside scoop on the hot topic chemicals of the day.
Behind the scenes the CFL collaborative public education effort brings together professionals and supporters from richly varied backgrounds including scientific researchers, business owners, environmentalists, technology professionals, directors, writers, community outreach leaders, musicians, university faculty, artists, food safety activists, filmmakers, students, and private citizens who want to make a difference.
Chemical-Free-Life.org is proud to be a partner in the efforts of Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families.
