/ About Us

In 2022, Because Health merged with the non-profit, Center for Environmental Health. CEH is a 25-year-old non-profit based in Oakland, CA, leading the nationwide effort to protect people from toxic chemicals. Like us, they believe that our air, water, food, and consumer products should be free of harmful and untested chemicals.

Because Health is a non-profit environmental health site, bringing you everything you need to know about how the places we live, work, and play impact our health. Through a combination of science-based tips, guides, and expert advice, it's our mission to show people simple ways to create a healthier future for themselves and their communities.
