Toxic chemicals threatening human reproduction and health

I thought this article was pretty interesting and don’t think we have really talked about this subject that much in class. But this article talks about how we are drowning our world in untested and unsafe chemicals, and the price we are paying in terms of our reproductive health is of serious concern. Also numerous accounts of cancer could be the cause of these chemicals being dropped on our grounds and into our water. I thought this was pretty interesting when I read this in the article. But ADHD behaviors and hyperactivity are among the list of poor health outcomes linked to chemicals such as pesticides, air pollutants, plastics, solvents and more, according to the FIGO opinion. Chemical manufacturing is expected to grow fastest in developing countries in the next five years, according to FIGO. In the U.S. alone, more than 30,000 pounds of chemicals per person are manufactured or imported, and yet the vast majority of these chemicals have not been tested.
