Many parents assume there is a rigorous testing process before a new chemical is allowed to be a part of our supply chain but truth be told there is very little evidence to support that. Our kids are being used as ‘science project’ for all these experiments and these toxic chemicals they are exposed to every day have been linked to cancer, early puberty, asthma, allergies and learning disabilities. By tackling toxic chemicals, we have a major opportunity to prevent some of these health problems. We need safer laws because our children deserve products that are free of toxic chemicals.
“We still don’t have any kind of decent law on the books that requires that chemicals be tested for safety before they come to market,” said Dr. Landrigan
We have to demand for laws that will protect our kids. Every little effort helps, don’t ever overlook the importance of any petition, the only way we are going to see change is for us to demand change.
