Why this is important

Forbyd hormonkemi nu!

Forbrugerrådet Tænk arbejder for at få udfaset hormonforstyrrende stoffer fra almindelige forbrugerprodukter, fordi stofferne har vist negative effekter i dyreforsøg, og fordi stofferne mistænkes for at have negative effekter i mennesker også, såsom barnløshed, tidlig pubertet, dårlig sædkvalitet og andre alvorlige helbredsproblemer. Derudover kan stofferne også forårsage problemer i naturen.

De hormonforstyrrende stoffer inkluderer:

Parabener i cremer og lotion
Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate i solcremer
Ftalater i bruseforhæng, fugemasser, t-shirts og vinyl gulve
Bromerede flammehæmmere i computere og elektronik
Resorcinol i hårfarve
Bisphenol A i dåser og dåsemad
BHA i tyggegummi

Men er disse stoffer virkelig nødvendige i forbrugerprodukter? Nej, der findes alternativer, og derfor vil vi have Folketinget og EU Kommissionen til at forbyde disse stoffer før det er for sent.

Ban Endocrine disrupters now!

The Danish Consumer Council focuses on endocrine disrupters (EDCs) in consumer products because the substances have shown negative effects in animal studies and are suspected of having adverse effects in humans such as infertility, premature puberty, low sperm quality and other serious health problems, as well as causing problems in nature.

The EDCs include substances such as:
Parabens in lotion
Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate in suntan lotions
Phthalates in shower curtains, sealants, t-shirts and vinyl floors
Brominated flame retardents in computers and other electronics
Resorcinol in hair dyes
Bisphenol A in canned food
BHA i chewing gum

But are they really necessary in consumer goods? No, there are alternatives, and therefore we call on the EU Commission to ban these chemicals before it is too late.

Notice:
Your name and country will pop up on this page, and will disappear again, when four more people have signed the petition.
