San Francisco Adopts Precautionary Principle

San Francisco led the nation in saying that, in the absence of scientific consensus of harm, a precautionary approach is warranted.

The efforts of the Breast Cancer Fund and members of the Bay Area Working Group on the Precautionary Principle secure adoption of the Precautionary Principle by the City of San Francisco, establishing the first program of its kind in the United States. The Precautionary Principle affirms we should take action now to avoid possible environmental damage when the scientific evidence for acting is inconclusive but the potential damage could be great.
