Wants Parents To Tell Congress To Reform Dated Chemical Law
Online PR News – 13-April-2010 – – 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, one of the most respected names in the vapor steam cleaner industry with an unblemished A+ Better Business Bureau rating, opened its doors in 1998 with one goal in mind: to offer consumers a cleaning method that is safe for human health and the environment. But in the ensuing 12 years, much has changed. With new research showing that dangerous substances used in everyday household products can cause serious and harmful impacts on human health, particularly for children, the need to reform a federal law that is as old as eight-track tapes is more important today than ever.
“The law used to protect consumers from chemicals found in everyday household products is busted,” says V.K. Dunlop, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president.
While there are over 80,000 chemicals on the market, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has only tested about 200 of them for potential toxic effects in humans. “We need a stronger chemical law to protect our families from toxic hazards at home,” says Dunlop.
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the primary chemical safety law in the U.S., was passed in 1976. Since that time, thousands of new chemicals have been introduced into the products consumers use everyday. But the TSCA has not been revised. As a result, thousands of concerned consumers and businesses across the nation are demanding reform.
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com is asking that you join in the movement by writing or calling your congressman today to demand that Congress take action on toxic chemicals. “Otherwise, we’re looking at the real possibility that our children will be the first generation of Americans to lead shorter and less healthy lives than their parents,” says Dunlop. “It’s time to act.”
