Environmental/health groups say the presence of industrial chemicals in Mainers who volunteered for a study underscores the need to protect the public from potential toxins found in everyday consumer products.
The groups involved in the Alliance for a Clean and Healthy Maine include: Maine Labor Group on Health, Maine Organic Farmers/Gardeners Association, Maine People's Alliance, Maine Public Health Association, Natural Resources Council Maine, the Maine Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Toxic Action Center Campaigns.
