Maryland is a national leader on toxic chemical reform, due to the efforts of Maryland environmental and public health advocates and state leaders. In recent years Maryland has passed bans on the toxic chemicals cadmium, lead, and TCEP in children’s products; the toxic flame retardant deca-BDE in household products; and bisphenol-A in baby bottles and infant formula containers. There’s a lot more work to be done to protect Maryland families from the dangers of toxic chemicals, and with a robust public health community, Maryland has a great place to start. With chronic diseases rising, and Baltimore asthma rates above the national average, we must do everything we can to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals linked to chronic disease.
