Better Living through Chemistry? A radio interview

Posted by Molly Rauch, MPH on June 28, 2010

We depend on chemicals in consumer products to perform as expected, and to be safe. But our regulatory system is not adequately protecting us from potential hazards in our food cans, diapers, shower curtains, baby bottles, and other consumer products. Listen to Washington State PSR President, Dr. Steven Gilbert, a toxicologist, together with pediatric urologist and PSR board member Dr. Rich Grady, discuss chemicals policy in an insightful and illuminating radio interview, touching on “chemical trespass,” the precautionary approach to chemical regulation, and the importance of state-level policy change. They also discuss the federal bills, currently before Congress, intended to modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act -- including the need to strengthen these bills. The interview was aired on Seattle radio station KEXP on June 19, 2010.

"better living through Chemistry" please, explain this to an honorably discharged Vietnam Veteran! Its 10 operations in the last 10 years, and they are NOT done with me yet!! Our government; Right, Delay, Deny, wait and this one will Die !! This is denied chemical dumping of toxic waste in the Pacific, South China Sea, at U. S. Military Bases..and sadly, Our government could care less for the health issues of our Veterans..
