Choosing our future - For a healthier life, consume chemicals in moderation!
This comic strip aims to highlight – in a humorous and simple way – the recent evidence of harm to health from certain widely used chemicals, and to provide advocates and the wider public with examples of individual action and EU policy opportunities that can help change our future for the better. The broad themes of the four stories are: the special vulnerability of children to toxics; the “chemical soup” that now exists in our bodies; the potential risks of using mixtures of chemicals, such as cosmetics; and, alternative “greener” lifestyles.
The publication explains the facts behind the dialogue, which are scientifically referenced. Other sections cover what the both individual and the EU can do to ensure and healthier and better future.
Produced jointly by HEAL’s Chemicals Health Monitor project and Mouvement pour les Droits et le Respect des Générations Futures (MDRGF) in English and French, as well as Dutch, the publication aims to provide readers with what is currently known about the links between health and man-made chemicals and examples of individual action and EU policy opportunities that can help produce changes for the better.
