Some Chemicals are Toxic to the Body.
Many chemicals are causing health and developmental problems
in lab animals, including cancer and liver damage.
- Read and listen to the news, to hear of new research.
- Car Seats. Over 150
children’s car seats were tested for chemicals in 2011, and test results
showed that 60% of them contained harmful chemicals that are linked to
reproductive problems, developmental and learning disabilities, hormone
imbalances, and cancer.
- Formaldehyde. Be aware of
the dangerous levels of formaldehyde, a potentially cancer-causing
chemical preservative, that have been found in children’s clothes and
blankets imported from China. New Zealand and Australia are among a
growing number of countries which are rejecting or recalling Chinese
exports of blankets and children’s clothing. (August 2007)
