    Producer/Host: Sue Mackey Andrews
    Engineer: John Greenman

    Issue: Daily unseen environmental hazards

    Program Name: Healthy Environments: Protecting Children from Unseen Dangers

    Broadcast Date: May 27, 2015

    Broadcast Time: 10-11:00 a.m.

    Program Topic: Environmental Diligence

    Key Discussion Points:
    a) Many of the hazards – lead, water and soil pollutants – aren’t visible, have odor or taste
    b) These toxins can be very damaging to young children especially because of the dose-intensity relationship to their physical size, but long-term exposure over time can be equally damaging to
    adults and seniors causing, for example, cancer and lung problems
    c) There are resources in Maine to help residents test for and mitigate these dangers

    Andres Smith, State Toxicologist and Director of the Environmental and Occupational Health Program within Maine CDC
    Nikki Fox, Community Health Coordinator with Healthy Acadia
