Watch the Fall 2012 ARI Conference presentation of '10 Americans' by President and Co-founder of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) Ken Cook. (recorded Oct. 12, 2012 in Garden Grove CA)
Ken reveals the shocking number of toxic chemicals EWG's research team found in the umbilical cord blood of 10 American babies born in 2004. This landmark study affirms the negative impact that environmental pollution can have on human health, especially relating to autoimmune diseases and autism.

It is a major force in national policy debates over toxic chemicals, pesticides, air and water pollution, and the ecological impacts of modern agriculture. The organization is leading efforts to pass the Safe Chemicals Act, which would revolutionize how we protect children from health problems caused by a wide array of toxic contaminants.
