Harmful chemicals are eaten daily by pregnant women.
This creates an automatic supply line for toxins to enter the newborns blood stream.
A “pre-polluted baby”
Environmental Working Group (EWG) studied the umbilical cord blood of ten Americans newborns. We found nearly 300 chemicals in their cord blood, including BPA, perchlorate, fire retardants, lead, mercury, and PCBs.
Stop pre-pollution, by enacting stronger chemical laws that will protect babies like Cal. The Kid-Safe Chemicals Act may be introduced this month.
Please sign the petition before then to show Congress that Americans want protection from these chemicals. We are just 5,375 signatures away.
Please help us create a safer word for our children.
The chemicals we found in our testing are increasingly linked to serious long-term health effects like learning deficits, infertility, ADHD and even childhood cancer.
Thank you for standing up to protect children like Cal and helping us put toxic chemicals on Congress’ “to do” list. It’s time.
