What's new - remember when it comes to some regulations on any industry, and it might include "governmental money" forget it - let anyone die before they have to obey Government Regulation! that is Socialism!

Our children are being poisoned.

Soon people will kill themselves. The industry should change and offer more and more organic food.

That's terrible! We can't even protect our children from toxins. They are so sneaky.

Outrageous! Because of the greed of corporations we are poisoning our innocent little children. This has to be stopped.

TAKE ACTION: Tell the nation's top ten retailers to get tough on toxic chemicals in consumer products!

This is just dreadful the manufacturers should be ashamed of themselves for leaving the little ones so at risk from such harmful products, the children rely on us to keep them safe and we are all failing them !
