This article deals with the mixed views of European doctors, toxicologists and scientists on the impact that Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) will have on improving human health. Dominique Belpomme, chairman of the French cancer research organisation Artac, argues that the rise in cancers over the past 20 years is attributed to chemical pollution. But, leading toxicologists have warned that campaigns such as those conducted by environmental groups are misleading the general public.
