Chemicals

Federal Government Finds Americans Carry Industrial Chemicals In Their Bodies
The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed in a recently released report that chemicals used or produced by industry, in agriculture and in some popular consumer products are present in the bodies of most of the 10,000 people tested nationwide.

Toxic Waste Sites Threaten Our Health
The U.S. PIRG reveals that thousands of communities across the U.S., polluters have dumped millions of gallons of highly toxic chemicals, including lead, arsenic and mercury, in the midst of unsuspecting neighborhoods. These sites poison the land, contaminate groundwater and drinking water, and may cause cancer, birth defects, nerve and liver damage, and other health effects.

Mercury In The Food We Eat
Across the United States, mercury pollution is known to have contaminated 12 million acres of lakes, estuaries, and wetlands (30 percent of the total), and 473,000 miles of streams, rivers, and coasts. And many waterways have not even been tested. The two biggest sources of mercury pollution are chlorine chemical plants and coal-fired power plants.

The Dangers of Pesticides
Of nearly 900 pesticides registered for use in the United States, the 37 belonging to a class of insecticides, known as organophosphates and 22 known as carbamates, are among those posing the highest risks to human health. In addition to outdoor exposure of these insecticides from lawns and gardens, people (children included), receive exposure to organophosphate and carbamate insecticides indoors and through food.

When Fact is Stranger than Fiction
Biological Research Facilities are more than just labs researching cancer cures and AIDS. The reality is that these facilities may also be harboring Anthrax, SARS, and other possible biological weapons.
