Title: The Human Toxome Project - Measuring the full scope of industrial pollution
Post by: Lijahdia on April 13, 2009, 06:47:36 PM
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) website reports results from the most comprehensive studies ever conducted on multiple chemical contaminants in humans. Since 2000 the EWG has spearheaded six studies finding 455 industrial pollutants, pesticides and other chemicals in blood, urine, and breast milk in 72 people altogether, from newborns and grandparents to mothers and teens. The EWG had found that pollution of the human body begins before birth, in complex combinations of chemicals never tested for safety.

Visit the website for a summary of all EWG body burden studies - 455 chemicals, 72 people, 6 studies.
