Your Story

Thank you so much for taking our membership survey! We estimate that this survey will take you around five minutes to complete. We really appreciate your willingness to participate -- and your answers will help us to create better, more effective campaigns to keep kids and families safe from toxic chemicals. Thank you again!

Toxic chemicals like arsenic, BPA, and phthalates have been linked to a wide range of chronic diseases and other health problems, yet most of us are exposed to hundreds of these chemicals every day -- whether through the products we use, the places we live, or the water we drink.

Question Title

* 1. How did you first become concerned with these issues?

Over 8,000 Mainers are diagnosed with cancer each year -- that’s one of the highest cancer rates in the country. At the same time, 10% of adults and 8.5% of children in Maine suffer from asthma. 1 out of every 6 Maine kids struggles with learning disabilities. And these are just a few of the issues associated with chemical exposure. Most of us have felt the impact of rising health problems in our own families and communities.

Question Title

* 2. Do you know anyone -- or have you yourself -- struggled with these, or other, health problems?

Question Title

* 3. Is there anything else you would like to share? (Ex. are you a parent? If so, how does this affect your interest in the above issues?)
