Products Liability, um Sex Toys

The Toronto Sun is reporting that Canada is getting serious about the dangerous Chinese plastics in baby bottles, more importantly sex toys. 


The Sun article nicely cuts to the chase, so let me quote, "[Amy and Kim] Sedgwick [who are] sisters want to know why chemicals that are banned in products like baby soothers are allowed in sex toys, putting womens' health at risk. [The Sedgwick sisters] -- owners of the Red Tent Sisters sex shop -- are working hard to clean up the sex toy industry and now have federal Liberal health critic Dr. Carolyn Bennett in bed with them.

 "The sex toy industry is unregulated. They are considered novelties, so they are not intended to be used, but they are," said Kim, who has a bachelor's degree in gender studies from King's College. Chemicals like bisphenol A and phthalates -- used to make plastics soft and flexible -- have been banned by Health Canada for use in baby teethers and bottle nipples but are still used in dildos. These chemicals are linked to health concerns ... breast cancer and there are infertility issues." "We would like them banned, or at least have labelling that says which chemicals there are," said Amy, who has a bachelor's degree in occupational therapy from U[niveresity] of T[oronto.]

All I'll add is, ... nah.

  1. This is getting out of hand - all these dangerous chemicals everywhere. I've found the trick to be more proactive about these things. There are simple test procedure I do at home to check for BPA and other chemicals. People can check it out on the following website: www.home-health-chemistry.com

    Keep safe,
    Anne.
