Some Facts You May Not Want To Know…

Every day in America a total of 42 billion pounds of chemicals are produced or imported for commercial and industrial uses. Of that, over 62,000 chemicals were “grandfathered” into commerce as part of the Toxic Substances Control Act without testing their impact on public health or the environment.

Currently, the government must prove that a chemical is harmful before it can be withdrawn from the market, a costly and time-consuming process that the EPA bears alone.

“Consequently, the EPA has used its authority to require testing for fewer than 200 of the 62,000 chemicals in commerce,” reports John Stephenson of the Government Accountability Office.
