    I’m glad to see that ongoing studies are being conducted to analyze our environmental impact on health. No doubt the chemicals referenced in the article are toxic to humans in certain levels. Manganese is mentioned as a potential toxic chemical, yet in very small doses it is an important nutrient for good health.

    The list of detriments to health has become overwhelming. Whether it be medications, air or water pollution, cosmetics, overuse of sanitizers, or increasing caesarian births just to name a few, all are contributing to deteriorating health. The biggest risk is to our children throughout the developmental phases. Any step to reduce toxic exposure is a step in the right direction.
