"One of the responsibilities faced by the Environmental Genome Project is to provide the science base upon which society can make better informed risk management decisions."
"The environment is everything that isn't me."Samuel Wilson on Albert Einstein
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."Samuel Wilson on Margaret Mead
"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."Samuel Wilson on John Muir

"We all recognize that in recent decades, many important achievements have helped create a cleaner, healthier environment, yet our national needs in environmental health are not being fully met."
"While the Environmental Genome Project does not seek to assign allele frequencies, we are aware of the importance of accurate allele frequency estimates for future epidemiologic studies and the large sample sizes such estimates will require."
"It is important to consider whether the sample size selected by the Environmental Genome Project will provide sufficient power to discover most alleles relevant to gene-environment interactions."
"The infrastructure for linking environmental health and public health is not working as well as it should."
"Moreover, environmental health at the local level has become narrowly focused, very much defined around regulations and the attendant regulatory debates."
