An article published yesterday by CBS reported on a study conducted by the Center for Health, Environment & Justice which reveals that approximately 75% of children's school supplies tested for high levels of potentially toxic phthalates. According to the Center for Health, Environment & Justice phthalates have been linked to birth defects, early puberty, infertility, asthma, ADHD, obesity and diabetes. These results were based on the study which randomly purchased and tested twenty back to school supplies from various New York City retailers. See Ryan Jaslow's article to learn more about the study's results on potential toxins in school supplies.
