At 9:30 a.m., PST, Wednesday, Mar 7, 2006 the poll runs at 45%
approve of ban of fragrances and 49% disapprove
I wonder how many who disapprove -- despite the fact that the story
gives some of the symptoms -- have any idea of the toxic chemicals
in fragrances and how they can leave the user to seriously affect
the health of all others, regardless of their current health
And, I further wonder if the people living with or dying prematurely
from environmentally caused lung cancer -- that apart from smoking
-- happen to be, or have been, users of fragranced products. When
will researchers start looking at the plethora of fragrance
chemicals -- tens to hundreds of chemicals used for any one
fragrance -- as to possible cause of those otherwise "unexplained"
cases of lung cancer?
