    Thank you to Stacy Malkin and New Society Publishers for issuing a much needed wake-up call! In an era of big corporations and their trade associations, it can be difficult if not nearly impossible to stand up against the powerful current of popular opinion. It takes tremendous moral courage and energized focus to do what is right and just, and I admire Ms. Malkin for blazing the way for the rest of us. I look forward to reading the book in depth, checking out the Environmental Working Group website and sharing this information far and wide. My hat goes off to you. Thank you.

    I love the idea of all natural and organic cosmetics, skin care, etc… However during these stressful economic times, how can I justify throwing out all my cosmetics/skin care just to purchase ones that are a) organic and safe; and b) too expensive for my pocket book right now?? Maybe they should have a trade in like they do with guns, eh? So an approved organic cosmetic company would let you trade in all your dangerous make-up, skin care, soaps, deodorants, etc..for similar products from their line. Does that make sense to anyone??? Just saying.

    Most a good post and supporting comments here. I would like to point out that others have made a different case, especially in terms of natural health. Have you found supplemental information on the Web, and would you point me in that direction?
