Seattle Slew

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

The body burden ball just keeps getting bigger, this time with test results from 10 Washington residents, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports. The Toxic-Free Legacy Coalition of Washington State tested for the usual suspects -- fire retardants, pesticides, mercury, lead and phthalates -- among others, and found five to seven of eight classes of chemicals in each participant.

This one's just another good article in an increasing stream coming out around the country as more and more tiny groups of people receive these still highly expensive tests. Still, it's great that awareness is on the rise, and you can increase yours by taking a look at EWG's work on body burden here.
