Common Cause Sheds Light on the Chemical Industry’s Political Machine

A new report by Common Cause sheds light on the chemical industry’s political machine.

In response Andy Igrejas, Campaign Director at Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Stated:

“Today’s report by Common Cause, Toxic Spending, is a powerful reminder of what we’re up against in our pursuit of common sense limits on toxic chemicals. Companies like Dow, Dupont, and ExxonMobil have constructed an elaborate political machine to shield their products from independent scrutiny, whether it’s by the public or government scientists. They are to blame for the lack of an effective chemical safety system in the country. They are also therefore to blame for that harm that chemicals have done to the millions of American families suffering any of the chronic diseases or conditions that have been linked to chemical exposure.”
