Issues Survey: Chemicals in our Kids
Now that we are in the American election spin cycle, what would we ask the candidates if we could? What would we expect to hear? For the next few days you can do it at 10questions, but we will use a survey per week to look at issues big and obscure that we might want our candidates to think about.
We recently noted that the FDA has a long list of "grandfathered" chemicals that have been around for so long that they are assumed to be safe, and they go into stuff that we use on our kids, even though some are associated with brain and nervous system damage, hormone disruption, allergies and cancer. Many are common ingredients in baby shampoo, lotion, diaper cream, and sunscreen.
