Anne alerts us to the big increase in toxic pesticides, with links to serious health concerns, that could be coming soon if a new glyphosate and 2, 4-D herbicide combination gets federal approval. Doctors and scientists have shared concerns about 2, 4-D’s link to increased risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, reproductive problems, Parkinson’s and neurological harm.
Here are two different petition sites where you can take action if you’re also concerned about the health implications of this toxic new pesticide duo: one at the Environmental Working Group, another promoted by Dr. Oz going directly to the White House:
Demand the President step in & oppose EPA’s approval of the New 2,4-D resistant Genetically Engineered Crops!
What could be lurking in your couch cushions? Most of us have furniture that contains toxic flame retardant chemicals. Duke researchers say these chemicals are showing up in young children at five times the rate of what’s in their mothers. Science and policy makers have discovered they can still make furniture to meet fire safety guidelines without the worst chemicals of concern – in fact they’re already starting to do that in California. A new federal policy could give us a safer standard for household furniture and some children’s products like chairs and changing pads. Do you know the clue that lets you know your couch might need a non-toxic upgrade someday?
Anne shares a little known shopping secret about what might be in your wallet right now. Plus, she’s detailing something toxic to watch out for at your favorite kids’ stores.
That’s all Saturday at 8 am Eastern time on NewsTalk 98.7 because The Housing Hour is looking out for your best interest!
