New research shows increased imports of dangerous chemicals. Groups call on EPA for action to protect Americans from ten highly toxic chemicals.
Today, three public health groups asked the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take action to protect the health of all Americans and the environment from ten highly toxic chemicals that they concluded pose an unreasonable risk to human health and the environment. These are the first ten chemicals to be evaluated under the recently strengthened federal chemical safety law, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
This year, a great group of public health advocates and chemical industry lobbyists were thanked for spending our Valentine’s Day talking about chemicals with the EPA staff.
