I have been working on an article for Safer Chemicals Healthy Families and in doing some research, I came across a trailer for an eye opening movie that I think will answer some questions you may have about why we need to pass the Safe Chemicals Act. So many times, trying to explain to someone why we need a new law to protect us from the 80,000 chemicals in our consumer goods (including foods) in the United States. They seem to have trouble comprehending that something as potentially toxic to our bodies, and land, could be put into anything humans would come into contact with if they had not been proven safe.
US Consumers and Their Families Are NOT Protected from Chemicals with Current Laws
Well guess what, in the United States today, that is exactly what is going on. Companies do not have to prove to the government that they have tested their formulations and products and that they are safe. They simply need to basically just tell them that they are safe and until they are proven unsafe, they are on the market. How do you like being a guinea pig for corporate America?
To help you understand exactly why we need the Safe Chemicals Act to pass into law, take a look at this trailer of the movie, Unacceptable Levels.
