Personal Care Products and Environmental Risks
An alarming study came out in Scientific American that shined a light on how the chemicals from personal care products persist in the environment. Researchers tested the air in downtown Chicago, as well as in Cedar Rapids and West Branch, Iowa. The levels of chemicals found in Chicago were ten times higher than that of West Branch and four times higher than Cedar Rapids. The most common chemical found in Chicago was D5, which is commonly used in lotion, shampoo, soap, and other personal care products. D5 can be dangerous to humans, and it is commonly linked to immune, nervous, and liver dysfunction. D4 was also found, and this can be particularly harmful to aquatic ecosystems. At the current levels that D4 can be found in the environment it is dangerous to aquatic wildlife, and poses a threat the rainbow trout population. Clearly these chemicals are not meant to be introduced to humans or to the environment, but everyday they are used and distributed throughout the world.
