America’s toxic chemicals laws are totally broken. Every American from newborn babies to senior citizens is exposed, without their consent, to hundreds of dangerous chemicals in everyday household products.
Some of these chemicals are linked to prostate and breast cancers, diabetes, heart disease, lowered sperm counts, early puberty, birth defects and other diseases and disorders. For tens of thousands more chemicals, we simply don’t have the data we need to know whether they are safe or not because they have not been required to be tested, which is the crux of the problem.Unlike every other major environmental law, America’s main chemical safety law has never been significantly amended since it was adopted 34 years ago.
With your help, that could soon change.
Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) has introduced legislation in the Senate to overhaul America’s failed toxic chemicals law. A companion bill is expected in the House soon.
Your help is needed to support and strengthen this reform effort.
Take Action: Urge your members of Congress to support strong reform of America’s toxic chemicals standards. Send your representatives a letter letting them know you, their constituent, demand this reform.
