The Kid-Safe Chemicals Act

An overview from the Environmental Working Group:
EWG tested the umbilical cord blood of 10 newborn babies and found nearly 300 chemicals, including BPA, fire retardants, lead, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and pesticides that were banned more than 30 years ago. The Kid-Safe Chemicals Act would require that all chemicals be proven safe for children before they can be sold.
Read the text of the bill that was introduced to the House in 2008 here.

Then sign a petition in support of the Kid-Safe Chemicals Act.
