Modern Chemicals: Precaution Is In Order

Modern chemicals do many good things for us. But some also do harm -- to us, wildlife or the environment. With U.S. industries now using some 75,000 chemicals, and as we discover more about their downsides, public demand for greater precaution is growing.

Modern chemicals? How modern are they?

We Americans want everything, now. What can you expect? We are so spoiled, that any minor inconvenience is a major catastrophe. We appear to care little for our future generations. Forgive my obvious inclination, but the conservatives are taking us down a path of no return. They don't care about anyone else, but themselves. That is destruction in the making.

Thank you. Great advice on the questions to ask when buying. Don't know how truthful the answers will be, but it's a start.

I've changed away from chemicals to natural cleaners. With some of these cleaning things as well as air fresherners and wax candles I find difficulty breathing properly. So they're out and green is in.
