In the past few weeks I have learned of several people getting sick or having severe allergic reactions to items purchased. From name brand purses to all natural shampoos. Chemicals in everyday household products are sneaking into our children’s bodies and into our own bodies at an alarming rate. Do you know what chemicals are in your baby shampoo or your designer diaper bag?
The new documentary STINK aims to tell the story of a father who went on a mission after purchasing some pajamas for his daughters from Justice and being hit with an overpowering chemical smell. In the film he interviews doctors, scientists, lobbyists and politicians.
“The idea for the film originated from director Jon Whelan’s experience in tracking down the source of a strong chemical odor that wafted off new pajamas he’d purchased for his two young daughters.
After discovering the toxic stench was a trade secret held by the parent company of popular American tween store Justice, Whelan began investigating the fragrance industry, which he suggests is valued at $100 billion.
What Whelan found is that manufacturers, with the aggressive backing of the chemical industry, routinely conceal thousands of potentially toxic ingredients in the baby care, household and personal care products you and your family use every day.” Source
“By keeping the ingredients secret, companies are taking away our ability to make informed choices. In other words, we don’t even have the right to choose whether we want to be exposed to a carcinogen. Companies using unsafe ingredients get to choose for us. And that’s why I made a documentary called “Stink!” – because no one should be ignorant about the Cancer Loophole. Americans need to know that our system to regulate chemicals stinks!” Jon Whelan – Director / Producer
