Tim Elgren
New York Times Features Elgren Letter

Professor of Chemistry Tim Elgren’s response to a New York Times article appeared as the lead letter in the paper’s Aug. 27 Science Times section. Writing in response to “Is There Danger Lurking in Your Lipstick?,” Elgren pointed out that “We are exposed to harmful chemicals every day, often unnecessarily so. The 1976 Toxic Substance Control Act grandfathered in more than 60,000 chemicals and does little to protect public health or the environment.”  More ...
