Learn About Environmental Health Studies From The People Who Do Them

One of the most important parts of investigating a possible cancer cluster can be a study of the environment.  But what do studies entail?  When is a study appropriate?  When is it helpful and when is it not?  And just what is the relationship between contaminants in the environment and human health?  All these are important questions to help understand why environmental health studies are done.  The State Environmental Health Investigations Branch, contains a wealth of information about these and related questions.  We encourage you to review this website it is a valuable and informative resource.
