Here's a sample message to send to your friends:

Subject: Tell the Senate: Protect us from untested toxic chemicals!

Dear Friend,

Here's an eye-opener: Almost all of the more than 80,000 chemicals approved for use in the U.S. have never been tested for toxicity to us people.

Only about 200 have ever been tested! This means we don't know the safety of most of the chemicals in the products that surround us every day.

But what we do know is that scientists are increasingly implicating chemical buildup in our bodies to rising incidence of numerous diseases, birth defects and developmental disabilities.

The problem can be addressed by updating the grossly outdated Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, which requires no testing for chemical approval. In fact it requires the EPA to prove a chemical is unsafe before it can be tested. Sen. Frank Lautenberg has introduced the Safe Chemicals Act to reverse the burden of proof, so companies must prove a chemical is safe in order for it to be approved for use. The bill has cleared committee and is waiting for a vote on the Senate floor.

Please join me in urging our senators to pass the Safe Chemicals Act, right away:
