Have you ever heard of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)?
Despite the fact that I am virtually obsessed with buying only organic produce and dairy products for my family, I didn’t know that this act hasn’t been updated since it was first passed in 1976.
Take a minute for that to sink in. Nineteen Seventy Six.
Try to think about how many ways our world has been changed for better and for worse since then. It wasn’t until the 1980’s that there were disposable contact lenses, compact discs or personal computers. You think maybe a few bazillion new toxic chemicals have been introduced into our world in that time, as well?!
