Toxic US by Gidget Giardino

Why is there a governing body in Europe for the ingredients used in making personal care products yet there isn't anyone looking out for the US? We are supposed to believe something is safe just because the bottle has the word "natural" on it. That is a crock of crap. A big one.

The United States does not have an kind of true rules and regulations in place to protect the American people from the poisons in the personal care products we use each and every day. We should all be outraged. Even some baby products have harmful chemicals known to cause cancer. Why? When the European Union forbids known toxic chemical use, why doesn't the US?

The very same companies who produce these toxic products for the US are doing business in the EU, and producing the same products for them toxin-free! I don't know about you, but..... that makes me angry!
