Saturday radio:  fast-action news & politics amid the usual global crises

July 28, 11 am - 1 pm on 90.3 FM in Greater Boston (web stream link below)


- A U.S. health agency withheld for five years their data showing toxic dioxin 
in the blood of Louisiana residents near oil & vinyl chemical factories. This 
historically African-American community has no state voting rights; no say in 
how polluting corporations conduct business next door. We'll hear from the 
community group who demanded the data and filed a petition against the U.S. 
government with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights of the 
Organization of American States. They await a response from the U.S. State 
Department. Monique Harden is an attorney with Advocates for Environmental 
Human Rights in Louisiana. Dorothy Felix is with Mossville Environmental Action

- Has U.S. farm legislation made you fat, or just diseased?
We ask John W. Boyd, Jr., who negotiated a $20 million trade agreement with 
Fidel Castro of Cuba. He founded the National Black Farmers Association. And 
Chuck Hassebrook--he helped pass Nebraska's anti-corporate farming amendment. 
He's with the Center for Rural Affairs.

- Brydie Ragan says there's one key to good health no one talks about:  money.
Research shows lower socio-economic status may be more harmful to health than 
risky personal habits.

- and more to come.
