We have all become toxic from continuing daily attacks. Each year in the U.S., approximately 12 trillion kilograms of chemicals are produced or imported, with little research on or accountability for how they affect our health and well-being.

Did you know that many areas of the world, including Canada, are still being exposed to radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan? And we are exposed to excessive radiation from various other sources, without government oversight or public notice. The public needs to begin asking our elected officials some serious questions about why this is happening and why the public isn’t being informed. The makers of cellphones, airport security screening devices, microwave appliances, and much more need to be accountable for the safety of their products.

Even cleaning our clothes can be a source of toxins: Fabric softeners, dryer sheets, and laundry detergents contain hazardous chemicals, including two known to be carcinogenic–acetaldehyde and benzene. And the real kicker? Manufacturers are not required to disclose the ingredients in laundry products, which also can contain fragrances with unknown ingredients. The chemicals in these products affect not only personal health but also public and environmental health; they enter the atmosphere and are flushed down the drain, finding their way into rivers and lakes.

Legacy pollution is a term used to describe chemicals that remain in the environment long after they were produced. For example, lead and arsenic were outlawed in paint and gasoline in the 80s, but they still contaminate our urban soil, affecting children and animals.
