The South Coast Today reports on a 35-person study in the United States that is testing people on the types and amounts of toxins that accumulate during every day routines. The test subjects represent a diverse group of people in terms of age, race and vocation, and although the study is not a typical type of sampling, the results are meant to show that “you don’t have to be working in a factory and drinking polluted water in order to be exposed to the three chemicals” the study is testing for. Two of the alleged toxins in question include phthalates, reportedly used in plastics, and bisphenol A, allegedly used in plastic baby and water bottles and as a liner in tin cans.
