CHILDREN’S TOYS MADE OF PVC CONTAIN DANGEROUS ADDITIVES
When you see a "non-toxic" label on a toy, you assume that toy is safe for your child. The label, however, might be deceptive. A Greenpeace investigation has revealed that toys made of soft PVC plastic (better known as vinyl) contain dangerous additives that can leak out of the plastic and be ingested by children.
These chemicals, which include lead, cadmium, and toxic softeners, may cause permanent damage to the brain, liver and reproductive system. What's Wrong With PVC Plastic? Throughout its lifecycle, PVC plastic (vinyl) is the worst plastic for the environment because it is the only common plastic produced using chlorine.
When PVC plastic is produced and burned (either accidentally or intentionally),
the chlorine content produces dioxin, the most poisonous synthetic substance known to science.
Dioxin has been linked to cancer as well as to developmental and reproductive damage. But PVC is unique among plastics in another way. Because PVC is a hard brittle and unusable material, a variety of chemicals must be added to it to make finished vinyl products.
These additives are generally not bound strongly into the plastic and can be released when the product is used. When children suck or chew PVC toys, they can end up ingesting these toxic chemicals.
Two Types of Hazardous Additives Stabilizers are added to all PVC products because without these additives, the chlorine would degrade the plastic.
Two common stabilizers are particularly alarming:
lead and cad mium.
Lead poisoning is widely recognized to be one of the most serious preventable public health hazards.
Even extremely low doses cause permanent damage to the human brain, leading to decreased intelligence. It is even possible to predict how much a child's IQ will drop for every increase of lead in the blood.
Cadmium is even more toxic than lead - it causes kidney damage and is linked to cancer. Plasticizers are added to PVC to make it soft or flexible. These chemicals are used in such large quantities that they can account for nearly half the weight of vinylproducts such as teethers.
Independent government studies in the United States and several other countries have demonstrated that when children put soft vinyl toys in their mouths, they can ingest dangerous levels of plasticizers called phthalates (pronounced "thay-lates").
Phthalates have been linked to damage to the kidneys, liver and sex organs.
WHAT’S BEING DONE ABOUT PVC TOYS?
In response to pressure from Greenpeace, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has requested that toy manufacturers stop using lead, cadmium and phthalates in various PVC children's products.
Parents are advised to throw away PVC infant toys that are intended for the mouth, and retailers are requested to remove them from sale.
Major toy manufacturers and retailers have pledged to comply with these requests. Greenpeace believes that these safeguards offer useful but inadequate precautionary measures. Because PVC leaches any chemical additives and because there are readily available alternatives to PVC toys, PVC plastic is an inappropriate material for children's products.
The safest and easiest solution is for toy manufacturers to avoid PVC altogether.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Don't buy PVC (vinyl) products. PVC children's products that you've alreadypurchased should be returned to the manufacturer or retailer.
Contact your state health authority and urge him or her to investigate toxic additives to vinyl products.
Call the following trade associations, retailers, distributors, and manufacturers and demand that they discontinue PVC children's products.
Hasbro (800) 242-7276
Mattel (800) 524-8697
Playschool (800) 752-9755

Dangers In The Home
Some of the materials with which you built your residence or furnished it may lead to health problems. In Earl Mindell's Nutrition and Health for Dogs (co-authored with Elizabeth Renaghan),
Mindell writes at great length about the importance of maintaining a strong immune system, and how pollution in our homes can diminish this possibility.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted studies of air pollution levels both indoors and outdoors for five years. They found that indoor pollution levels are one hundred to two hundred times higher.
Mindell recommends cleaning all filters, ducts and vents often, or you and your pets could be breathing asbestos, pollens, pesticides, tobacco, dust mites, mildew, bacteria, and a host of other unhealthy agents.
If you are building or remodeling a home, look for products that say "toxin free" on the label. Carpets especially are troublesome. Look for a "green label" stating that the product has met voluntary emissions criteria.
It is a good idea o have the retailer air out your new carpet, and for you to air out your home once the carpet is installed.
Rubber latex in carpet backing and carpet and carpet adhesive often emits toxic fumes.
This can cause a variety of ailments, including headaches, vomiting, nausea, and irritated eyes.
Paints are important to consider, too. Oil- or latex-based substances contain approximately three hundred toxic substances.
The fumes often linger and can cause all sorts of ailments for both humans and domestic animals. Try to choose paints labeled "a clean air choice."
When you paint, keep your animals outside or even at a friend's house, and leave your windows open. Mindell recommends against softwood plywood, waferboard, or strand board over pressed woods, many of which contain a toxin called urea formaldehyde.
Again, these products can cause nausea along with throat, lung, and skin irritations, and more.
"The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that in the United States we spend over one billion dollars on medial costs for cancer and heart disease caused by indoor pollutants," writes Mindell.
POISONS IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD CLEANING PRODUCTS
The next category of dangerous products includes dozens of household cleaning agents such as toilet bowl cleaners, bleaches, and detergents.
These can destroy tissue by acid or alkaline burns, by dissolving through tissue membranes, by being absorbed into the bloodstream, and bycausing generalized illness and other symptoms.
In addition, flea products -are not as safe as they seem, especially if they are not used as directed. Some may actually be carcinogenic. If your animal shows any abnormal reaction - scratching, depression, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive salivation -stop using them and contact your animal health care provider.
In an article titled "Spring Cleaning: Using Pet-Safe Products to Clean Your Home," writer Amy Carlton (www.holistichound.com) includes this list of particularly hazardous chemicals often found in commercial cleaning products: - Perchloroethylene is a stain remover that is a known animal carcinogen Amyl acetate is found in furniture polish.
- Artificial colors and fragrances with no cleaning value can cause allergic reactions or irritations. - Benzene is a carcinogen found in many detergents and oven cleaning supplies. - Naphthalene, a cousin of benzene linked to skin allergies, cataracts, and kidney problems, is often contained in deodorizers and carpet cleaners.
Need I go further and discuss the harmful effects of these products on the immune systems of babies and the elderly? Fact is, we’re all suffering!!! Let me recommend some family friendly cleaning Products:
