New Edition of Hispanic Environmental Health Regarding Pesticides

By SOP newswire

EPA announced today a new Hispanic environmental health page on pesticides in its Spanish-language portal.  The new page discusses health and environmental issues associated with the proper use of pesticides and informational resources in Spanish and English.  This Hispanic Web site is part of the agency's continuing expansion of outreach to the Hispanic community in the United States and Puerto Rico.

The Hispanic environmental health page, "El medio ambiente y su salud," focuses on the agency's overall efforts to educate Hispanics, researchers, and health care providers on how environmental health issues affect the different Hispanic communities.  The page is updated regularly with new information on developments and policy.  Since its launch last year, this popular page has covered issues such as asthma, mold and carbon monoxide.  This segment of EPA's Spanish-language portal will feature other environmental issues such as green technology and drinking water in the near future.
