Great NPR article on CPSIA & Phthalates

Public Concern, Not Science, Prompts Plastics Ban.
NPR's article/audio is right on on the dangers, or lack there of, of phthalates!.
"The frightening allegations helped pass the law banning phthalates. But Wind says she stands by the studies done by government researchers. 'I know that we did really good science,' she says. 'And sometimes people don't listen to the good science.'"

No, in the case of CPSIA, Congress is not listening to scientists, to the people, to consumers, to businesses, to reason...One might wonder what they are listening to?!?
