Cindy was one of five "pioneers of 'people's science'" to share The RIGHT LIVELIHOOD AWARD in 1997. The award is popularly called "the alternative Nobel prize".
All were honored for their outstanding work in upholding human values, often in the face of hostility from mainstream science. Cindy was honored "for her extraordinary courage and determination to put her personal tragedy at the service of humanity by generating the knowledge that can help others understand and combat the risks that toxic chemicals present to human life and health".
