Cancer in Your Plastic

Rodale News reports another common chemical used in plastics & PVC is being added to California's Proposition 65 List due its toxicity to humans:

"Among the evidence cited for including DiNP on the Proposition 65 list were animal studies finding a link between the chemical and blood and bone marrow cancers as well as tumors in the liver, kidney, uterus, and pancreas."

"DiNP is used in 90 percent of vinyl products on the market, so you're likely exposed to it in some way every day. The chemical is used in electrical wire and cable insulation, vinyl flooring, roofing materials, vinyl-coated fabrics, toys, garden hoses, raincoats, rainboots, and anything made with PVC-based artificial or "vegan" leather. It's also used to some extent in paints, sealants, and adhesives."
