""Children born decades after the Vietnam War are still suffering from the effects of Agent Orange. American forces sprayed the chemical agent to destroy plants and trees where guerilla fighters took refuge. What they didn''t realize was the herbicide would plague fighters, and their children, on both sides of the conflict with cancers, miscarriages, brain function and a number of birth defects. While studying the severe health effects of Agent Orange, I couldn''t believe such low level chemical exposure could be so detrimental to human health. We are exposed to hundreds of chemicals every day...I started to wonder if some of the chemicals in our homes, schools and work buildings could be detrimental to human health, as well. I was right. After years of research, I found that indoor air is much more polluted than outdoor air, with everyday materials, such as paint, floorings, furnishings and printers containing mixtures of chemicals affecting human health. As an indoor air quality scientist, I developed a system to help reduce the number of harmful chemicals in products. Today, I''m still uncovering how indoor air quality affects human health, and developing test protocols to reduce harmful chemicals. My name is Marilyn Black, and #IamUL.""

""A previous doctor, five years prior, had told me the lumps were nothing to worry about, but surgery revealed I had Stage IIIc metastatic melanoma. It took everything from me, my family and friends to fight back against the cancer but throughout the treatment process I gleaned a purpose. I started small, participating in Relay for Life events. But, it became my mission to give back to the community that had supported me when I needed it most. I volunteered to sit on the board of the American Cancer Society North Shore chapter, encouraging people to volunteer for programs, work on events and educated the community. I coordinated UL''s sponsorship of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a yearly walk in support of breast cancer research, and the annual sponsorship of the William T. White golf tournament which raises money for the @americancancersociety. Cancer is not a death sentence, even though we have lost many people to the disease. If I can beat it, you can, too. My name is Chuck Gerhardt, and #IamUL."" #cancersurvivor #cancer #melanoma #survivor http://www.ul.com/inside-ul/giving-back-in-the-name-of-cancer/

""It was a complete societal shift for 100,000s of people. We expected the drastic reduction of health issues with new sources of clean waterwhat we didn''t expect were the unrelated impacts. Children in these Indian communities are significantly more likely to attend school. Residents dont spend as much time traveling to sources of clean water, and are thus able to find jobs and earn an income. Having safe and sanitary toilets coupled with easy access to clean water has even reduced the risk of rape and assault to women and children. My team works with the @safewaternetwork by supplying pro bono audits on water stations to help ensure the water is actually clean. We train operators and technicians to build and repair water systems without electrical or mechanical risks so the water stations are safe to use. My name is Zubin Dastoor, and #Iamul."" #csr #cleanwater #safewater #india http://www.ul.com/inside-ul/knowledge-is-power-for-low-income-residents-in-india/
