Expert Presents on Effects of Pesticide Exposure

Dr. Warren Porter, professor of Integrative Biology and Environmental Toxicology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present findings from his research on the health consequences of pesticide exposure July 30.

Porter will discuss the landmark five-year study he and his research team conducted that found combinations of commonly used agricultural chemicals at concentrations currently found in our groundwater can significantly influence the immune and endocrine systems as well as neurological functions in animals (including humans).

Porter has been a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 1968 and continues to educate people about how current practices tend to hide the biological consequences of low level exposures to pesticides, plasticizers and p-GMOs from the public.  

The event takes place at 10 am Monday, July 30, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 10341 Water St., Ephraim. The Woodcrest Village Grounds Committee of Sister Bay organized the free event.

Dr. Porter and his wife vacation annually in Door County and care deeply about the environment. This year he is taking time from their vacation for this talk.

The presentation will be videotaped. If you cannot attend, and would like a copy of the tape, call Mary Smythe, 920.854.3330.
