  • The Story
    Behind This Photo

    TO ME, THIS PHOTO MEANS:

    This photo was taken while I was in Bhopal, India doing some international medical work. In the early 1980s, one of the world’s worst industrial disasters occurred in Bhopal, which exposed huge numbers of people to toxic chemicals and resulted in serious medical problems. I am very concerned about the links between toxic air pollution and the prevalence of neurodevelopmental and reproductive problems.

I am a retired Developmental Pediatrician, now head of the Environmental Health Workgroup at Oregon Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility.

I came to this work out of deep concern for the increasing prevalence of neurodevelopmental disabilities. Air pollution is clearly a contributor to the total burden of toxic chemicals which I believe contributes to this problem, as well as significant reproductive problems. Regulation is critical. I am a very concerned and motivated citizen.
