Unborn Babies Face Toxic Chemical Onslaught That OB/GYNs Can Help Guard Against

Commented Mar 28, 2012 at 11:29:03 in Green

“Thanks for this great article, promoted it on twitter last night! The Safe Chemicals Act is a bill in Congress that would put an end to this nonsense and would ensure chemicals are safe before they end up on the market. Thanks to leaders in the OBGYN community like Woodruff and Vanderberg. For more info check out www.saferchemicals.org and "like" them on Facebook. Lots of good info.”

Toxic Chemical BPA Under Attack, But Alternatives May Not Be Safer, Experts Say

Commented Feb 24, 2012 at 09:48:48 in Green

“Thanks for this article. It is true, our federal laws are not protecting American families from toxic chemicals. There is a bill introduced called the Safe Chemicals Act that would go a long way to increase the safety of chemicals, move us away from toxic ones and create incentives for greener alternatives. Everyone should call their Senators and ask them to support this common sense law!”

“An excellent article, I argee, although fighting big pharma is every bit as difficult as fighting big oil, big gas, big coal and big nuclear...

All of the above industry sectors have been proven time and time again dangerous to mankind, but very little is actually done about it in our respective legislature bodies..

Time for a rethink? I think so...

“YES! Thank you for this blog!!!! Not only is pinkwashing gross, it helps support companies that use toxic chemicals linked to breast cancer... how is that for irony. Or Komen and company deny any links to the rise in cancer due to the environment, like the thousands of toxic chemicals found in our consumer products. Very refreshing read, thanks!”

Should Dow Get a Veto Over Government Scientists?

“Good article, thanks for posting this Huff Post. It still amazes me how small somewhat unheard of hearings on Capitol hill can have big implications for public health and the environment. We've got a lot of work to do to educate this country on what good and bad science is. I'm sorry Dow, but you shouldn't get to veto high-quality science produced by NTP, NIEHS etc. It's simply wrong. Another way to take action is to sign this petition: http://bit.ly/zT44lv

“Thanks for this post, it's alarming how the FDA is so out of touch with the threats of toxic chemicals in our food supply. Lets hope we can pass strong federal and state laws to regulate all toxic chemicals, including a federal ban on BPA in food containers and the Safe Chemicals Act!
