Only a large scale overhaul of the regulations that govern what chemicals get into our stuff, such as the Safe Chemicals Act, can begin to protect us.

I just wonder where this stops.

Why are we not all dead already? I should have been in the ground 50 or 55 years ago. All the chemicals.

I just wonder how many gallons of water a person would need to drink from a hose to actually get sick from it? I used to live on hose water all summer and I am positive I drank hundreds of gallons of water from hoses laying out in the sun for years.

Are eggs killers of everyone who eats them or do they provide (whatever the latest craze is) and are now beneficial? Coffee kills you. No wait, it reduces the risk for some cancers.

I could go on and on but I believe anyone that believes all this stuff is shortening their own life by constantly worrying about whether the next thing they touch, taste or breathe is going to reduce their life by 2.13 seconds.
