An interlocking legislative complex is proposed for the control of carcinogenic and other adverse impacts of established run-away petrochemical and radio-nuclear technologies with particular reference to winning the losing war against cancer. These proposals are also applicable to the poorly recognised potential adverse public health and environmental hazards of emerging technologies, particularly genetically engineered milk and food production. The proposals, which embody fundamental democratic rights, include: the precautionary principle; toxics use reduction and incentives for the development of safe industrial technologies, the right-to-know; balanced and transparent decision-making; sanctions against white collar industrial crime for suppression or manipulation of information; and the establishment of an independent citizen health and safety agency.
