“I tawt I taw a chemical,” seems to be University of Washington “researcher” Anne Steinemann’s modus operandi.
Her latest anti-fragrance study reports finding “over 25 VOCs… [in] dryer vent emissions, including seven HAPs and two probable carcinogens.”
These products can affect not only personal health, but also public and environmental health. The chemicals can go into the air, down the drain and into water bodies.
But exposure, let alone mere detection, is not toxicity and Steinemann offers no evidence that these emissions actually affect anyone’s health or the environment in any meaningful way.
She also associates herself with the last remaining vestiges of the discredited multiple chemical sensitivity scare crowd, and so carries anti-chemical agenda baggage.
