Subject: SLS: "life threatened by attack from toxic chemicals" (fwd)

>Zurich, Switzerland. 10/11/97
>AP-- (Zurich, Switzerland)  An international panel of interdisciplinary 
>scientists released an extensive report yesterday documenting dangerous and 
>aberrant effects resulting from a wide variety of chemicals commonly used 
>in industry and the home.
>The consensus statement issued by the Barring Institute links a wide
>range of serious human abnormalities.
>Effects include: infertility (precipitous drops in human male sperm
>counts); reversals of male/female sexual characteristics; memory loss
>and reduced intelligence; immune system failure and an increase in
>cancer especially in the young; decreased life span and premature aging;
>learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder; aggression and
>passivity; changes in procreating and parenting behavior.
>The effects were first observed in animal studies and then later
>identified in human populations.
>EDC's, "endocrine disrupting chemicals," have been found to be the source
>of the potentially dangerous and critical deviations in human, animal, and
>plant systems.
>EDC's are produced for use in such common household products as:
>cleaners, carpets, toys, food packaging, certain plastics including
>plastic bags and bottles, paint, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes, and
>many other products.
>Industrial and agricultural use of EDC's include refrigerants,
>pesticides, certain plastics, detergents, synthetic dyes, chlorine,
>nylon, DDT, PCB's (polychlorinated biphenyls), and CFC's
>Dr. Steve Kater, the study's principle author, stated, "We consider this
>an undetected crisis of catastrophic proportions which threatens
>civilization as we know it."
>Psychologist Dr. Nancy Penn-Wilson endorsed the findings, saying, "We
>are taking the idea very seriously that invisible chemicals which have
>become commonplace in our lives may be negatively altering human
>behavior as well as our ability to reproduce--maybe even irrevocably."
>Sir Sydney Chrichton, spokesman for the International Consortium of
>Chemical Producers (ICCP), disputed the study and accused the Barring
>Institute of "scare-mongering to attract funding for flimsy,
>pseudo-scientific studies." "The chemicals cited have brought nothing
>but tremendous benefits to mankind," he said.
