So next, the materials move to production.And what happens there is we use energy to mix toxic chemicals in with natural resources to makes toxic contaminated products.


There are over 100,000 synthetic chemicals in use in commerce today.Only a handful of them have even been tested for health impacts and none have been tested for synergistic health impacts.That means when they interact with all the other chemicals we are exposed to every day. So we don't know the full impact on health and environment of all these toxic chemicals.But we do know one thing,toxics in,toxics out.As long as we keep putting toxics into our industrial production systems,we are gonna keep getting toxics in the stuff that we bring into our homes and work places in schools and duh,our bodies.Like BFRs,brominated flame retardants.Third chemical that make things more fireproof.But they are super toxic,they're neurotoxin,that means toxic to the brain.What are we even doing using a chemical like this.Yet we put them in our computers,our appliances,couches,mattresses,even some pillows.In fact we take our pillows,we douse them in a neurotoxin through bring them home and put our heads on them for 8 hours a night to sleep.Now, I don't know but it seems to me in this country with so much potential we could think of a better way to stop our heads from catching on fire at night.


Now these toxics build up the food chain and concentrate in our bodies.Do you know what is the food  at the top of the food chain with the highest level of many toxic contaminants?Human breast milk.That means we've reached a point with the smallest members of our societies.Our babies are getting the highest life time dose of toxic chemicals from breast feeding from their mothers.Is that not an incredible violation?Breast feeding must be the most fundamental human act of nurturing.It should be sacred and safe.Now breast feeding is still best and mothers should definitely keep beast feeding.But we should protect it,they should protect it.I thought they were looking out for us.


And of course the people who bear the biggest branch of these toxic chemicals are the factory workers.Many of whom are women of reproductive age.They are working with reproductive toxins,carcinogens and more.Now I ask you what kind of woman at reproductive age would work in a job exposed to reproductive toxins,except for a woman with no other option.And that's one of the beauties of this system?


The erosion of local and environments and economies here ensures a constant supply if people with no other option.Globally 200,000 people a day are moving from environments that have sustained them for generations into cities,many to live in slums,looking for work no matter how toxic that work may be.So you see it's not just resources that are wasted along this system but people too whole communities get wasted.


Yep,toxics in toxics out.A lot of the toxics leave the factories in products but even more leave as by-products or pollution.And it's a lot pollution.


In the US,our industry admits to releasing over 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals a year.It's probably a lot more cause that's only what they admit.So that's another limit,because yak,who wants to look at and smell 4 billion  pounds of toxic chemicals a year.So what do they do?Move the dirty factories overseas,pollute someone else's land.But surprise a lot of that pollution is coming right back at us carried by wind currents.So what happens after all these natural resources are turned into products?

So next, the materials move to production. And what happens there is we use energy to mix toxic chemicals in with natural resources to make toxic (hamaded) contaminated products.
There are over 100,000 synthetic chemicals (using) in use in commerce (hammers) today. Only a handful of them (are) have even been tested for health impacts and none have been tested for (past) synergistic health impacts, that means when they (are) interact with all the other chemicals we’re exposed to (response) every day. So we don’t know the full impact on health and the environment of all these toxic chemicals. But we do know one thing - toxics in, toxics out. As long as we keep putting toxics into our industrial production systems, we are going to keep toxics in the stuff that we bring into our homes, workplaces, schools, and our bodies. Like B.F.R.s – brominated flame retardants, they’re a chemical that make things more (fire prove) fireproof but they are super toxic. They are neurotoxin that means toxic to the brain. What are we even doing using a chemical like this? Yet we put them in our computers, our appliances, (culture) couches, (matches) mattress, even some pillows. In fact, we take our pillows; we (duons) douse them in a neurotoxin and then bring them home and put our heads on them for eight hours a night to sleep. Now, I don’t know, but it seems to me in this country with so much potential, we could think of a better way to stop our heads from catching on fire at night. (heads on the fire at night.)
Now these toxics build up the food chain and concentrate in our bodies. Do you know what is the food at the top of the food chain with the highest level of many toxic contaminants? Human breast milk. That means that we’ve reached a point (with the) where the smallest members of our societies, our babies, are getting the highest lifetime dose of toxic chemicals from breastfeeding from their mothers. Is that not an incredible violation? Breastfeeding must be the most fundamental human act of nurturing. It should be (secret) sacred and safe. Now breastfeeding is still best and mothers should definitely keep breastfeeding. But we should protect it. They should protect it. I (found) thought they were looking out for us.
And of course the people who bear the biggest branch of these toxic chemicals are the factory workers, many of whom are women (at) of reproductive age. They are working with (three product toxic cause more) reproductive toxins, carcinogens and more.
Now I ask you, what kind of woman at reproductive age would work in a job (were working at a job) exposed to reproductive toxins, except for a woman with no other option? And that’s one of the beauties of this system? (build our system)
The erosion of local (and) environments and economies here ensures a constant supply of people (with people) with no other option. Globally, 200,000 people a day are moving from environments that have sustained them for (society) generations into cities. Many to live in slums, looking for work no matter how toxic that work may be. So you see it’s not just resources that are wasted along (the) this system but people too, whole communities get (away) wasted.
Yep, toxics in, toxics out. A lot of toxics leave the factories in products, but even more leave as by-products or pollution. And it’s a lot of pollution.
In the U.S., our industry admits to releasing over 4,000,000,000 pounds of toxic chemicals a year. (This) It’s probably a lot more because that’s only what they admit. So that’s another limit because, yak, who wants to look at and smell 4,000,000,000 pounds toxic chemicals a year. So what do they do? Move the dirty factories overseas, pollutes someone else’s land. But surprise, a lot of that pollution is coming right back at us carried by wind currents. So what happens after all these natural resources are turned into products?

So next, the materials move to production, and what happens there is we use energy to make toxic chemicals in with the natural resources to make toxnic contaminated products.

There are over 100,000 sythetic chemicals in using commerce today, only a handful of them have even been tested for health impacts and none have been tested for * health impacts, that means when they interact with all other chemicals were exposed every day, so we don't know the full impact on health and environment of all these toxic chemicals, but we do know one thing, toxics in, toxics out. As long as we keep putting toxic into our industrial production systems, we are gonna keep getting toxics in stuff that we bring into our homes, walk places, and schools and down our bodies. Like BFRs, * flamed with *, there are chemicals that make things more fair approved, but they are super toxic. there are * toxicant, that means toxic to the brain. What are we even doing using a chemical like this? Yet we put it in our computers, our appliance,  couches, mattresses, even some pillows, in fact, we take our pillows, we * them in the nerotoxicant, through bring  them home, and put our heads on them for eight hours at night to sleep. I don't know, but it seems to me in this country with so much potential, we could think of a better way to stop our heads from catching on the fire at night.

Now this toxics build up the food chain and concentrate our bodies. Do you know what is the food at the top of the food chain with highest level of many toxic contaminates? Human breast milk, that means we have reach at a point with the smallest members of our societies. Our babies are getting the highest lifetime dose of toxic chemicals from the breast feeding from their mothers. Is that not an incredible violation? Breast feeding must be the most fundamental human active nuturing, it should be secret and safe, the breast feeding is still the best, and mother should definitely keep breast feeding, but we should protect it. They should protect it, I thought they are looking out for us. And of course, the people who bear the biggest brought of these toxic chemicals are the factory workers. Many of whom are women of productive age, they are working with reproductive toxics, * and more. Now I ask you, what kind of woman of reproductive age will work in a job exposed to reproductive toxics? Except for a woman with no other options. And that is one of the beauties of this system.

The erosion of the local environments and the ecomomies here ensure a constantly supply of people with no other options, globally 200,000 people a day are moving from environments that have sustained them for generations into cities, many to live in slums(贫民窟), looking for work no matter how toxic that work may be. So you see it is not just the resources that are wasted along the system but people too, whole communities get wasted.

Yet, toxics in, toxics out, a lot of the toxics leaves in the factories and products, but even more leaves by products or pollution. And it is a lot of pollution. In the US, our industry admits to release over 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals a year, there is probably a lot more because that's what they only admit. So that is another limit, because yark who wants to look at and smell 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals a year. So what they do, move the dirty factories overseas,  pollute someone else's land, but surprise, a lot of that pollutions is coming right back at us carried by wind currents, so what happens after all those natural resources turned into the products?
