NYTimes columnist Nicks flips out about things of which he knows nothing.
Kristof has apparently never heard of the toxicology principle, “the dose makes the poison.” Mere presence of detection of a substance does no denote toxicity. Demanding that chemicals be proven absolutely safe (the precautionary principle) is impossible. I can only laugh at the notion that babies are born “pre-polluted.” People like Kristof have no problem with scraping babies out of uteri before they are borne. Spare us the faux concern.
