The Disappearing Male – Human Extinction

I don’t know how long this documentary will be up so do yourself a favor and watch this:

Comments… This goes back to my previous post of ethics. Why would petro chemical companies insist that their products are safe just to make a buck? They may be singly responsible for the extinction of humans. Is that worth a few dollars, a few million dollars? As long as someone is making money or has a chance to make more money then there needs to be regulations put into effect. It’s pathetic to think that not only toys that our children play with on a regular basis, put in their mouths, sleep with, bathe with but plastics that surround us are harming us.

Hopefully a great democratic president like Barack Obama will have enough balls to stand up against lobbyists that are fighting against this kind of regulation. I think companies and people running companies like this should be treated criminally. 

I know it’s hard, I don’t have a lot of suggestions but learn to limit your exposure to harmful plastics. The biggest culprit again is the cosmetic industry. Stay away from hair conditioners! That’s one thing I learned from the documentary. That and Bisphenol A and Phthalates. Canada has made headway in banning BPA food containers. That’s a step in the right direction. Now they need to ban phthalates from baby toys, if not everything! Educate yourself. Don’t follow blindly.
