New and look forward to meeting new friends and making a difference. It is amazing to me that nearly 75% of the top volume chemicals in commercial use don't have even the most basic toxicity tests. Organochlorines make up class of chemicals created by combination of chlorine and various compounds. Many of these substances are considered animal carcinogens and likely human carcinogens. PCB's and DDT have been banned, but others continue to be used in pesticides. Trace residues have shown up in fatty tissues of birds, animals and humans even in human breast milk. Organochlorines get into the soil, giving them direct route into the food chain. It is my hope you agree these need to be banned in our residential communities. We can make a difference together. Don't forget to sign petition. Thanks for stopping by.
