The Latest On: Toxic Exposure & Health
Eve Gartner, Attorney, Northeast Office, Earthjustice: “I see an increasing awareness of the linkage between exposure to chemicals and serious health effects, but people don’t always have a choice in what they buy. And that’s why it’s important for governments to actually get the worst chemicals off the market.”
Jonathan Kalmuss-Katz, Attorney, Earthjustice: "The findings of the Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals are a meticulous, unvarnished, and absolutely devastating critique."
Eve Gartner, Attorney, Northeast Regional Office, Earthjustice: “EPA could have used its authority in a meaningful way to stem the tide of these chemicals into commerce, the environment and human bodies. And instead it has taken tiny baby steps that have really not been protective. This is a crisis that we will be dealing with for millennia.”
