The lead news story in Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) (http://ehp03.niehs.nih.gov/home.action) this month explores the current state of the science on autoimmune disease and its connection to the environment, addressing questions about whether autoimmune disease is on the rise and whether there are specific - and potentially avoidable - environmental triggers involved. A second news feature examines the fourth National-Scale Air Toxics Assessment released by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency in March and discusses toxicity implications of the data.
