Phthalates (pronounced THA-lates) are dangerous chemicals found in everything from food and plastic toys to cosmetics and vinyl flooring. Phthalates disrupt the normal functioning of hormones and have been linked to reproductive health problems, birth defects, brain impairments and developmental delays in children. These chemicals end up in our household dust, which then enter our bodies when we breathe, touch contaminated surfaces or eat food. We must do everything we can to protect our families from the dangers of phthalates in our homes.
Urge the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to protect kids and families from the dangers of phthalates by banning these hazardous chemicals from food, toys and other children’s products.
