We have already killed more than we have saved


We forget the toxic lessons of the past.

 Remember DDT, PCB’s, Tris, and recently PBDE’s showing up in women’s breast milk? Plus Asbestos used mostly as a fire retardant, which has already killed 300,000 people and another 10,000 people die from it each year. Counting the next 25 years Asbestos will have killed 550,000 people.

 In Europe thousands of infants have died from Antimony leaching from crib mattresses.

According to USA Today, “Though the USA has the world's toughest flame retardancy standards, 3,000 people die in fires each year. The Chemical Manufacturers Association estimates the number would be up to 960 higher without the [1.2 Billion pounds of] flame-retardant chemicals we now use [annually].”

 In 25 years we will have killed 550,000 people from Asbestos alone. We are already behind in the count by 23 to 1. We have killed 23 people for every 1 we have saved. What will the real count be in 100 years?


Why can’t we learn from our past mistakes?
