Are You Being Exposed To Dangerous Chemicals?

New Jersey’s senior U.S. Senator has launched a Chemicals of Concern campaign to raise awareness about what are described as dangerous toxic chemicals found in everyday consumer products.

“There are hundreds of industrial chemicals found in our bodies, yet the public knows very little about the health effects. Exposing these ‘chemicals of concern’ will provide much-needed health information for individuals and families to consider the next time they head out to buy laundry detergent, new shirts, or canned food to use in tonight’s dinner,” says U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg.

The Senator’s campaign will focus on several chemicals, including 1,4 dioxane found in laundry detergent, formaldehyde used in wrinkle-free clothing, and BPA in the lining of food cans. You can follow the campaign on Senator Lautenberg’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Senator Lautenberg is the leader in Congress on reforming the Toxic Substances Control Act, and last week he was joined by New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and 27 additional Senators to introduce the “Safe Chemicals Act of 2013.”  The bill would provide the Environmental Protection Agency with the authority to protect Americans from harmful chemicals.
