CHEMOPHOBIA PANIC can ― and historically has ― led to POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS OUTCOMES and UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.
Environmental-terrorists assume that chemicals cause cancer unless you can prove that they don’t.
Kids are going to spend a life-time being exposed to chemicals ― auto exhaust, chlorine, perfume, smoke, soot, soap ― they will be fine ― parents should just calm down.
Over the last several years, the level of FEAR, MIS-INFORMATION, and MEDIA HYPE surrounding the use of SAFE CHEMICALS in every-day household products has swelled to a level which must be addressed in detail before this situation gets even further out of hand.
It is NOT POSSIBLE to prove that a chemical does not cause cancer.
Obsessing over every item in the home that isn’t « natural » or contains compounds too difficult to pronounce is a waste of time and energy.
PSEUDO-SCIENCE and FEAR OF PERCEIVED ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS among the public has led to CHEMOPHOBIA.
Studies may note that chemicals have been detected in people’s bodies, and yet, they FAIL TO IDENTIFY ANY DEFINITIVE ILL EFFECTS.
The groups with a vested interest in keeping you afraid are NOT A CREDIBLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION.
The notion that we are constantly are being bathed in toxins, and that all accumulate in our bodies and do some kind of harm is FARCICAL.
The reason that miniscule amounts of chemicals can be measured in our bodies is due to BETTER ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES ― not a wholesale poisoning of the public.
There are certainly real risks in the home, and these should be taken seriously ― cleaning products, electrical plugs, medications, and stairs.
When parents become OBSESSED WITH THE MINUTE RISKS, they often dismiss the REAL ONES.
