Signed...I'm housebound because my body can't tolerate chemicals, pesticides etc. Manufacturers and related marketing mobs have literally been getting away with murder.

Signed, and shared.

Jenny, I have some very similar issues as you - but am no longer homebound. I amm also sensitive to pesticides, formaldehyde, fragrances, and others. I do hope and pray that you get better - avoidance is crucial to recovery !

It is long overdue for Congress to do something about the thousands of toxic chemicals being used today - many of them have not even been verified for safety ! But to do so - they would use animal testing - which of course we do not want !!

Gladly signed. Its a issue I strongly am for seeing that it becomes a law. Companies that produce their products with all of these crazy chemicals make me sick. They need to be stopped now, before many of their products harm consumers any more. In the old days, they didn't have all of these chemical, so why should it be around our household now. We need to go back to doing cleaning, gardening, etc in a much more nature way. Thanks Simone

This is why so many people are sick today. We are all exposed to so many chemicals every day, this is scary to think about. Something needs to be done now.

Gladly Signed. Safe Chemicals means cheaper health insurance in the long run. Maybe the Health Reform will see this and manditory pass the bill.
