Water is everywhere. But how safe is it?
On January 15, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University will tackle the issue by hosting a talk called “Our Water, Our Health: Are We in Danger?”
The discussion will feature noted biologist, author and environmentalist Sandra Steingraber.
Steingraber, who is also a cancer survivor, will talk about the infiltration of toxins into our water systems, particularly around places where there is hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.”
She’ll also discuss her theories on how toxins enter our daily lives and our bodies.
This program is part of the Academy’s bicentennial series, “New Questions for an Old Planet.”
“Our Water, Our Health: Are We in Danger?” talk
When: Tuesday, January 15, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, 1900 Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Cost: $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers, free for Drexel students
