(wfcr) - Sunday is earth day. It's safe to say that biologist Sandra Steingraber doesn't wait for this one day a year to pay attention to the planet. Steingraber studies environmental links to cancer and reproductive health. Some have described her as the new Rachel Carson. Her work took on a personal dimension when she became pregnant with her first child. she began taking a closer look at how chemicals affect developing fetuses and young children. WFCR's Francesca Rheannon asked her about exposure to ingredients in common household products and how children's may be affected.
