Tests Found High Benzene Contamination of Diet Soda

  Industrial Pollution Begins in the Womb

Pollution in Newborns
"In a study spear- headed by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) in collaboration with Commonweal, researchers at two major laboratories found an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord blood from 10 babies born in August and September of 2004 in U.S. hospitals. Tests revealed a total of 287 chemicals in the group. The umbilical cord blood of these 10 children, collected by Red Cross after the cord was cut, harbored pesticides, consumer product ingredients, and wastes from burning coal, gasoline, and garbage."

Environmental Working Group, July 14, 2005


It's hard to get food today that isn't contaminated with pesticides. Organic foods are expensive, but then so is the cost of diseases that result from the ingestion of toxic foods.  It's not just the financial cost, it's the emotional cost to victim and family that we need to consider.  How does a parent feel when their child is suffering?  Don't we suffer right along with them?  And then we feel guilt as well for not doing what we should have as a parent to prevent their suffering.  The good news is that we can do something!  And it's not as difficult or impossible as we imagine it to be.

Environmental Working Group (EWG) Their team of scientists, engineers, policy experts, lawyers and computer programmers pore over government data, legal documents, scientific studies and their own laboratory tests to expose threats to your health and the environment, and to find solutions.
