We didn’t Start the Fire

If asked, what would you list as the top 10 most important innovations in the past 100 years or so? Thinking of innovations during this time is simple! Limiting the list to 10 is not so easy!

What’s on your list? Does your top 10 list include electronics like the TV, computer, internet, or the cellphone that you never intentionally leave home without? Are cars, airplanes, electric bikes or scooters on the list? What about healthcare innovations such as heart surgery, joint replacement, antibiotics or other medications?

Innovations are easy to like; they often make our lives easier, healthier, and longer. But innovation often brings costs – costs that are measured in lives and not dollars. Thanks to labor unions, significant gains have been made in worker health and safety. But many challenges remain, such as exposure to industrial toxins.

Do not miss Left Behind with articles from the Wall Street Journal’s investigation into the health effects of lead telephone cables on workers and communities!

And remember, it’s up to all of us to tackle the problem of industrial toxins. As Billy Joel wrote in the song, “We Didn’t Start the Fire”:

We didn’t start the fire
It was always burning, since the world’s been turning
We didn’t start the fire
No, we didn’t light it, but we tried to fight it.

Happy Reading!
