Our country is facing large challenges when it comes to our health. Learning and developmental disabilities, infertility, and childhood and young adult cancer are on the rise. Some are even calling puberty at the age of 10 a new “normal.”
The good news is many of these health trends could be prevented if we took a serious look at addressing toxic chemicals in this country. The law governing how chemicals are regulated, or lack thereof, hasn’t been updated since the 1970s and falls short of protecting our most vulnerable New Mexico communities.
