Miller-McCune Magazine Wins Environmental Journalism Prize
Date:7/23/2009

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Society of Environmental Journalists has named Valerie Brown's article for Miller-McCune magazine, "Environment Becomes Heredity," the winner of its 2008-2009 award for outstanding explanatory reporting in a print publication. Other winners in the contest include stories published and aired by the Los Angeles Times, National Public Radio, The Center for Public Integrity and USA Today.

Brown's winning story plumbs the intricacies of the emerging field of epigenetics to discuss growing evidence that even small chemical exposures at key stages of animal development can trigger multi-generational health problems. SEJ judges said her story "employs a solid scientific knowledge, plain English, and humor to reveal how mothers exposed to certain chemicals may be passing genetic time bombs on to their children and grandchildren. . . . Brown's ability to break down the complicated scientific details surrounding how environmental impacts can affect future generations of animals was educational and entertaining -- a rare combination in a story that dives into molecular biology, toxicology and genetics."

"Valerie Brown has a knack for taking extremely complicated scientific information and turning it into important and accurate journalism that's fun to read," Miller-McCune Editor-in-Chief John Mecklin said. "No, amend that: It's not a knack, it's a real talent that I stand a bit in awe of."

Brown's winning story can be found on Miller-McCune.com at www.miller-mccune.com/science_environment/environment-becomes-heredity-489. A list of all the SEJ winners is posted at www.sej.org/initiatives
