Danger Plasticisers!

Where there is plastic, there are plasticizers. They make the otherwise brittle synthetic material soft and flexible. Although the use of particularly dangerous plasticizers has been prohibited in children's toys, these chemicals are found time and again on the European market in toys produced in China. We take in these plasticizers every day, in foods, cosmetics, even in organic milk. There is no escape from this environmental toxin. It is found in the house dust of every one of our homes.
