Now that school is back in session, you and your children need to shop for school supplies.
Shopping for school supplies is not as simple as you think. Are you aware that there are many dangerous school supplies out there? Some are toxic; others are made of dangerous materials that could pose a serious hazard to your child's health and safety.
Children are the most sensitive to exposure to chemicals - whether in food, clothing, toys, or school supplies. This is because their bodies are still growing and their nervous systems are still developing.
A recent study conducted by the Centre for Health Environment and Justice showed that products made from vinyl, such as 3-ring binders, lunchboxes and backpacks contain phthalates. These are chemicals often added to plastics to make the plastic softer. What you didn't know is that these chemicals, when exposed to young children, especially boys, are linked to reproductive as well as respiratory problems.
If your child has been seriously injured from using one of these products, it is important you contact an experienced personal injury attorney.
