Toys: No Longer Innocent

Another shocker has come on the scene. San Francisco has banned the sale of certain plastic toys for children under three years of age that are said to be made with contaminants . What we perceive as "innocent" toys are now having harmful chemicals be discovered. A family of chemicals called phthalates are currently under lab observation. These chemicals are said to have extreme affects on the body, such as the interference in hormone regulation.

Nothing seems to be safe in the world today. Too little of this and too much of that will hurt a person. The harmful effects of certain things in life, even the necessities, never fail. It's terrible how the excitement in young children's lives (toys) is becoming a nuisance. When won't everything in life result in harm or even death?
