Halogenated Flame Retardants is just one of “The Toxies” that Fran Drescher is down on.
Think of Fran Drescher and you can almost hear the high-pitched whine that’s kept her employed for nearly two decades. But you might not know that the actress is also an environmental activist who connected the dots between everyday toxins and illness after she survived cancer more than 10 years ago.
Drescher went on to found the non-profit Cancer Schmancer, was instrumental in getting the United States’ first Gynecologic Cancer Education and Awareness Act passed into law and is now working with the CDC to use the appropriated funds to reach more women. She currently serves as Special Envoy for Women’s Health Issues by the US State Department and recently introduced a California initiative to mandate cancer-screening tests in women’s basic health exams.
That’s why we were thrilled to see Drescher throw her weight behind “The Toxies,” a satirical red carpet award show to promote awareness of common toxic chemicals, hosted by Physicians for Social Responsibility in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 24th—with viewing parties held nationwide.
Want to help your friends wise up to the dangers of Ultrafine Particulates and GMOs? Host a viewing party and watch actors like Fran bring their Big List atrocities to life.
No whining allowed.
