Frog in a Coalmine?

These days you hear things sometimes about frogs. Frogs with mutations. Frogs that aren’t developing properly. And you have always wondered what these frogs tell us about ourselves. Well, it turns out that some of the leading people on this issue are right here in the neighborhood, so we have lured them into the studio to tell us the latest on endocrine disruptors, the chemicals behind some of these frog mutations… including an EPA docket that has just been reopened on one prevalent chemical. With us in the studio will be Brian Hill, Staff Scientist with Pesticide Action Network, Nancy Evans, Health Science Consultant with the Breast Cancer Fund, and Tyrone Hayes, Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley.
