The Center for Health, Environment, and Justice sent me the following email asking for all of us to take action to demand stronger environmental guidelines to Dioxin. I mentioned this horrible chemical in my article, “Are Toxic Chemicals Lurking in your Furniture and Building Products? ” One product that contains dioxin is PVC. As noted below, dioxin is a known carcinogen. Read on as to why you need to sign the below petition.
“At the request of Dow Chemical and the American Chemistry Council, the EPA has extended the public comment period on their proposed cleanup guidelines for Dioxin to Friday April 2nd. Now more than ever, we need your help to counteract lobbying by Dow Chemical and the chemical industry.
There is still time to let your voice be heard! To date over 1,400 people have raised their voice and told EPA they want stronger cleanup guidelines for Dioxin, one of the most hazardous chemicals known to man. Dow Chemical and the American Chemistry Council have pressured EPA to expand the public comment period through April 2nd. Let’s use this to our advantage and allow EPA to hear from you!
Dioxin poses a serious health risk to both children and adults. In response more than 100 countries have signed a treaty that calls for a global phase out of Dioxin. Dioxin is a powerful cancer causing agent and human carcinogen. Join over 1,400 Americans by telling EPA that more stringent guidelines must be developed for Dioxin cleanup.
Remember, there is still time to take action and let your voice be heard!“
It only take a minute to click and sign your name. Remember, it takes a village.
