Fire retardants, Teflon chemicals, fragrances, bisphenol A (BPA), and perchlorate were found in every individual tested. The women who lived in Green Bay, New Orleans, Corpus Christi, and Oakland tested positive for up to 60% of 75 chemicals evaluated. Each subject had at least one chemical at a high percentile.
Dr. Anila Jacob, MPH, a senior scientist at EWG, said this is more proof that the Toxic Substances Act is outdated. A major overhaul is needed to protect Americans from the adverse effects of chemicals we encounter in our everyday lives.
