The immediate goal of the Healthy from the Start campaign is to shift the focus of radiation exposure standards from “Reference Man” to those most at risk. The longer term goal is to get all exposure standards (for both radiation and non-radioactive toxic chemicals) to protect the most vulnerable among us. The campaign steering committee consists of representatives from the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, Alliance for Nuclear Accountability, BE SAFE, Faithful Security: National Religious Partnership on the Nuclear Weapons Danger, Making Our Milk Safe, Mike Thorne and Associates (scientific consulting), People for Children’s Health & Environmental Justice, and Physicians for Social Responsibility. For more information about the campaign see the materials below or contact us at .
