Exposed to plastic fumes, women working in some factories have a 400% increased risk of breast cancer, study says

Thanks Global and 16 x 9 for looking into this.

Current chemical regulations don’t come close to protecting our health, or the health of the people who have to work with them on a daily basis.
Life (and health) really needs to be prioritized over profits. There is no good reason to allow anyone to profit while polluting or causing others to suffer. Why not have industries making things that that contribute to health and well-being?

I agree with The Science and Environmental Health Network: “Regulating hazardous waste is always problematic. The basic premise is flawed: make products that are toxic and regulate the production, sales and disposal of those products. A far better approach is based on the precautionary principle: make products out of safe materials, require producer take-back of products. Search for the best alternatives to toxic chemicals and establish zero waste policies.”
