The U.S. desperately needs a modern chemical policy that reduces health hazards and risks. Our country lags far behind most developed nations because it allows use of hazardous and untested chemicals in consumer products and other materials.
It has been 37 years since Congress passed the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) which was intended to ensure the safety of industrial chemicals. TSCA is an utter failure at protecting the public’s health from toxic chemicals. Since TSCA’s passage, rates of serious diseases like childhood cancer, breast cancer, asthma, autism, infertility, birth defects, learning disabilities and other health conditions have increased— not decreased as one might expect if the law were in fact health-protective. TSCA has been so weak that it has led to restriction on only five substances. If the U.S. is to improve health nationally, it must address environmental factors by preventing exposures to hazardous substances such as persistent, bio-accumulative, or toxic chemicals.
