Dangerous chemicals in consumer products and the environment that are largely unregulated are posing unacceptable risks to human health, ANA told U.S. Senate staff in a joint briefing with Physicians for Social Responsibility Sept. 20 on the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (SB 1090).

The nurses’ and physicians’ groups urged the Senate gathering to modify the Chemical Safety Improvement Act to better protect vulnerable populations, including pregnant women, infants, young children and the elderly, as well as workers, low-income communities, and areas with high levels of aggregate chemical exposure, such as communities near polluting industries.
