Fox & Friends to feature Mark Schapiro on Toxics in Everyday Products

Posted By Shay On August 22, 2007 @ 7:08 pm In Nature & Environment,Socially Responsible Business | No Comments

Author Mark Schapiro [1] will be on Fox & Friends [2]tomorrow morning at 7:22 AM to talk about his new book, Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What’s at Stake for American Power. With the recent news about toxic substances found in everything from pet food to toys that are being manufactured in China, Mark will focus our attention on how those products have been allowed into the US. Largely, it’s the lack of regulations banning such substances. The good news is that the European Union and many other countries—including China—are banning such substances from these products. The bad news is we aren’t, and that means the US could become the dumping ground for toxic products banned from the shelves of stores in other countries. Sure, we hear ya—it costs too much to make safer products and it would but companies on the block. Not so. Companies are meeting these higher standards in other countries, and still turning a profit. Don’t take our word for it, though, tune in to Fox & Friends in the morning and let Mark give you the goods.
