Chen Speaks to Live Science About Parabens Study

Dr. Jiangang Chen, associate professor in the Department of Public Health in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences, was interviewed by Live Science about a University of California, Berkely, study that indicates that a group of chemicals commonly used in cosmetics and other personal-care products may stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells at doses much lower than previously thought.

Chen researches potential environmental impacts on human reproduction. A considerable part of his research has been focused on a wide variety of synthetic compounds with intrinsic hormonal activity that may have adverse effects on human health.
