I THOUGHT that I was reading my local newpaper instead of C&EN when I saw the concentrate titled, "Chemicals, Estrogens Targeted in Water" (C&EN, Sept. 28, page 50). As C&EN news reporters should know, estrogens are chemicals. Calling out chemicals as somehow different helps perpetuate the myth that all "chemicals" are bad.
