[greenyes] WWF-UK European blood survey reveals record level of man-made ch emical


The following link tells of the results of blood tests done by the World
Wildlife Federation in Europe of 47 people from 17 countries (including 39
members of the European Parliament) for 101 chemicals in five groups:

- organochlorine pesticides
- PCBs
- brominated flame retardants
- phthalates
- perfluorinated compounds

Every person tested had these chemicals in their blood, with an average of
41 chemicals per person and a high of 54 chemicals in one individual. 76 of
the 101 chemicals were found in the people tested, including some chemicals
that have been banned in Europe for over 20 years.
