Do you live in one of these five cancer-causing hotspots?
A map showing the location of cancer gas-emitting facilities reveals more than 4.4 million Americans live in five hotspots – a 10-mile radius of two plants – and experts blame the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for failing to protect these communities.

These facilities are commercial sterilizing plants that use ethylene oxide to decontaminate medical equipment and food products.

Two sterilizers may expose more than 1.6 million people in Los Angeles, California, while 1.85 million people live within 10 miles of six plans in Minneapolis, Minnesota… (Continue to full article)

Do you live near a cancer gas-emitting plant? Map shows more than 14 million Americans live within 5 miles of commercial sterilizing facilities
More than 14 million Americans live within just five miles of 104 cancer gas-emitting facilities, reveals a new report.

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) found that these commercial plants release large amounts of ethylene oxide, a flammable colorless gas used to clean medical equipment and food items.

These facilities, designed to look like warehouses or office buildings, are located in densely populated areas, with more than 10,000 schools and childcare centers within range… (Continue to full article)

Texas bills would force doctors to abide by ‘do no harm
Texas doctors who use their skills to mutilate mentally confused children could lose their medical license if bills in the state legislature become state law.

Two bills before the Texas House and Texas Senate would make it illegal for medical professionals to participate in the transgender-affirming practice that is often described as barbaric and dangerous, and which is making many hospitals lots of money.

Jonathan Covey of Texas Values tells AFN lawmakers are taking action because there is no evidence life-changing hormones and body-altering surgeries improve a child who identifies as the opposite sex.

Industry group says detergents meet new environmental standards set by New York
An environmental advocacy group says New York state regulators will take a closer look at several popular laundry detergents, citing a new state regulation limiting the presence of a chemical believed to be a human carcinogen.

However, an industry group representing detergent manufacturers tells ConsumerAffairs that there has been no ban and none is expected because major manufacturers currently meet the new standard.

“People can also be exposed following contact with cosmetics, shampoo, or bubble bath that contain certain ingredients in which 1,4-dioxane may be a contaminant,” the advisory notes. “1,4-Dioxane does not remain in the body because it breaks down into chemicals that are removed quickly.”

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified 1,4-dioxane as a probable human carcinogen… (Continue to full article)
