WVE’s Meet Miah video series is designed to highlight how we are exposed to hundreds of different chemicals every day — from those in the products used to clean our homes and bodies, to the pesticides sprayed in our schools, offices, gardens and playgrounds. And unfortunately, many of these chemicals are linked to serious health impacts like cancer, infertility, asthma and more.
Our health is already impacted by where we work, where we live, what we eat, our access to information, resources, quality of affordable healthcare, as well as our gender, race, income and more. And the added unnecessary exposure from everyday products is further harming the health of our bodies, communities and planet.
The “Meet Miah” series introduces views to where many of these harmful exposures are coming from, why toxic chemicals are ending up on our shelves in the first place, concerns about compounding and cumulative exposures — and why WVE fights so hard for safer products!
