What is unconscionable is that the government is aware of so many of these issues and takes no action.

What is the website mentioned by Judy Robertson. I didn´t get it and would like to get it to get more awareness for myself and for family and friends.

People may not read labels, but more often than not, we are not informed and find ourselves living a life where we make choices out of a false belief in (desperately needed) convenience. As for myself, the study doesn't surprise me - My asthma worsens each year, and it's frightening.

What's shocking to me is people are asleep and don't read the labels of things they ingest or put on their bodies.
