    Toxicity in the environment is destroying the planet, and all biological organisms. Time, long past, to eliminate all toxins. We need a planetary detox!

    It’s about time that we all take a stand, and demand that all manufactures indicate that their materials and processes are proven safe for our children.
    Our Government has done little to protect, and make sure that materials are safe for human exposure.
    Just think about it how the use of harmful chemicals have effected all of us, and is not being controlled today.
    If someone was being paid off to evaluate rather than not it would be a benfit us all.
    I would like to see a certification lable on all toys, indicating that they meet all safety standards.
    This means that someone needs to care enough about the safety/lives of our love ones.

    People’s drinking water is being poisoned with 2,4 D (agent orange), Atrazine that kills both plants and animals, Glyphosate and who knows what all where industrial timber lands are sprayed in drinking watersheds, and in the air where people work and live. People are dying of Spider Brain Cancer and getting Breast Cancer in hoards, especially men who work for timber companies. The state does nearly nothing because of the corrupt legislature and ALEC. The people ODF sends to watch aerial spraying and inspect poisoning complaints are rendered disabled from work from neurological damage, Parkinson’s, MS, and cancers, also got in entire towns and rural communities being poisoned . This is genocide. This has to change now! If our legislators won’t change it, out they go!!

    I am not a judge nor a jury. But I buy and pay for products that are in the children’s toys category. Label, Label,
    and Label. I know; if Monsanto can get away with it why can’t you? Monsanto ain’t getting away with it. Just
    stay tuned. Meanwhile, clean up the toys, cloths and things that can go into the mouths of young’uns.
