    Mark Bezos: A life lesson from a volunteer firefighter

I was the second volunteer on the scene, so there was a pretty good chance I was going to get in.

A recent report from the royal college of obstreticians and gynaecologists highlighted the challenges of dealing with potential but unproven risks to child health during pregnancy. The report’s authors acknowledge that most exposures to environmental chemicals experienced by pregnant women probably pose minimal risk.

The report is based on growing concerns that the cocktail of chemicals we are exposed to may present risks we are currently unaware of.…
