An ambitious goal, yes, but one we can all work towards. Numerous scientific studies have shown chemicals in food, air, and everyday products cause or increase the risk of getting cancer. We can make more informed decisions on the products that we choose to use. But why not ban toxic chemicals that harm our health and increase our risk of getting cancer from our food, air, and everyday products? Many countries have started to do so, but the U.S. doesn't seem to be a leader in this change. The Clean Air Act is designed to help keep our air clean but many places in the country are still not meeting the Clean Air Act requirements over forty years after it was first introduced.
