Use the form below to send your Senators a message urging them to pass the Safe Chemicals Act now. After you sign, we'll show you LCV's new music video "Test It, Maybe," a parody of the summer hit "Call Me, Maybe" that uses song to tell people about the dangers of toxic chemicals.
About the Safe Chemicals Act: Right now, there is little control of what goes into our everyday products, such as household cleaners and soaps, furniture, plastics, and electronics. So many of these contain toxic compounds that have been linked to rising instances of childhood cancer, learning disabilities, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, reproductive disorders, and asthma. We need Congress to pass the Safe Chemicals Act to reform our broken chemical policy and finally protect us from dangerous chemicals.
Pass the Safe Chemicals Act Now!
Your action is needed to protect American families from toxic chemicals. I urge you to pass the Safe Chemicals Act today.
In recent decades, the incidence of early puberty, certain childhood and adult cancers, infertility, and learning and developmental disabilities has increased--sometimes at alarming rates. Scientific studies continue to demonstrate that the toxic chemicals we are exposed to in our every day products can significantly increase the risk of developing these and other diseases and disorders. Data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) shows that exposure to toxic chemicals begins in the womb. Most pregnant American women have numerous toxic chemicals in their bodies, some of which are known to have adverse impacts on the health of their developing babies. Our children are born already contaminated with toxic chemicals that can cause health problems for the rest of their lives. This is unacceptable.Congress has an obligation to pass a law that will protect our health and our environment from harmful toxic chemicals.We call on Congress to make the right choice for America's families. Pass the Safe Chemicals Act now.
