    " We focus on compounds that individuals are likely to be exposed to as a consequence of normal consumer activities or medical treatment, namely phthalates, bisphenol A, polyfluorinated alkyl acids, dioxins and furans, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and polychlorinated biphenyls. Environmental exposure to these chemicals during everyday life could have adverse consequences on renal function and might contribute to progressive cumulative renal injury over a lifetime. Regulatory efforts should be made to limit individual exposure to environmental chemicals in an attempt to reduce the incidence of cardiorenal disease."

    HOw noxious, carcinogenic chemical toxins damage brain development. (uh, it's not just growing kids that are affected though. All living things, including adults)

    • 'no safe level of exposure'

    • 5:26 'In Canada and the US, chemicals are used in consumer products and released into the environment BEFORE they are tested for toxic effects'
    • The European Union requires industry to prove that the chemicals they use aren't toxic BEFORE they enter the market'

    "
    Though Monsanto takes credit for voluntarily discontinuing production of PCBs before the U.S. government banned them—and other companies, like Bayer, produced them to a lesser extent—in recent years they have aggressively evaded responsibility for the effects they have had on the environment.

    Though it is ultimately difficult to determine Monsanto's exact degree of responsibility for the struggles marine animals now face as a result of human pollution, it is clear man-made chemicals propagated by massive corporations are still taking their toll"
