Companies may soon be required to prove chemical safety before use

Posted Aug 06 2010 10:29am
(NaturalNews) There is a new piece of legislation before Congress that will require chemical manufacturers to prove that an industrial chemical is safe before they can use it in products. The Toxic Chemicals Safety Act of 2010 will grant more power to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate chemicals and will update the antiquated Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 to keep up with the times.

I’m disturbed this wasn’t already in place.
