Sadly, the heartless, greedy men who exploit children and have no regard for their health feel that children are easily replaceable. There are always more orphans...

Why are there so few who care enough about tomorrow so as to allow this poisoning of their own as well as our future?

Wolf, you got that right. Money is more important to those in power than the lives of those who support their butts.

I signed and I blame the greedy Corporations that should be checking where and how their products are made from start to finish. But they don't want to do that so they can keep the profits high despite children dying. The inhumanity to others is disgraceful.
