In what may seam shocking, chemical exposure research ON HUMANS is now okay. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger pulled the trigger on "bio monitoring bill" when enables California to be the first U.S. state that can measure how its resitdents react to chemicals in common products. Fun fun.
State health officers will use blood, urine, tissue, hair and breast milk samples collected voluntarily from a cross-section of California, taking into account ethnic, age, income and geographic differences, to gauge levels of exposure.
"There are literally thousands of chemicals being used in our everyday products in the United States in cleaning supplies, pesticides, cosmetics and more. It's important to know more about how those chemicals are building up in our bodies or how they may be affecting our health," Schwarzenegger said in a statement.
