This is getting annoying. Do we really need to be producing so many things with so much junk in it?
I am so frustrated I am just going to send you to Grist.com where good ol’ Umbra has summarized a few reports on toxic toys and umbilical cords.
Healthy Child Healthy World also has a nice little write-up, with fun facts like “(PBA) was first synthesized as an estrogen replacement therapy in the 1930s and today is one the most pervasive synthetic chemicals in modern life with more than 2 billion pounds a year produced in the United States alone.”
Want to help everyone out? Go to the Breast Cancer Fund’s website to ask your Senator to support the BPA Act of 2009, which would ban PBA from all food and beverage containers. This is not a partisan issue, this is a person issue.
