Every day we are exposed to dangerous chemicals and toxins. They are supposed to be regulated by the companies who test, produce, and market them.
To make sure they uphold their standards, there is a government bill called the Toxic Substances Control Act. Put into effect in 1976, it allowed the government to gather all the information on new chemicals being produced and any in existence at that time.
Companies are tasked to test and confirm safety before these chemicals hit the market. But with any compound, there is a risk of toxicity and danger to those who use them – even if used properly. These companies have to report all their data to our governmental agency, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).
However, it’s the companies themselves that do this testing and check for safety. Tens of thousands of chemicals are produced in this country every day. Do you think every single one of them is fully tested before they hit the market? Watch this video now to learn more.
