Because Health Launches New Environmental Health Lifestyle Website

Because Health Website

The Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE), an environmental health nonprofit organization, announced today the launch of its new lifestyle website Because Health. The website offers environmental health educational content and information through a combination of science-based articles, tips, product recommendations and expert advice so that people can make well-informed, healthy and non-toxic choices.

By partnering with environmental health advocacy organizations and featuring opportunities for consumers to become involved in market-based and legislative reforms, Because Health strives to drive change in the products and policies that impact public health.

“I started Because Health for people who care about wellness and health and recognize that environmental pollution, toxic chemicals in our products and climate change are just as important to our health as working out and eating right,” said Karen Wang, Ph.D., founder of Because Health and director of CHE. “As a working mom, I know it’s impossible to research everything, DIY it all and determine what’s scientifically reliable. I want our site to be a place for real people who want to make informed choices and advocate for their health.”
