UN Talks Focus on Too Many Toxic Chemicals
Only a small number of the 100,000 chemicals sold worldwide have been safety tested.
An international conference on chemicals has a plan that could prevent more than 1 million people from dying every year from chemical-related issues.
The UN says the infant death rate from chemical causes is 12 times higher in developing countries than in developed countries. Lead causes about 600,000 new cases of mental disabilities in children every year.
Conference delegates said it is important to gather more information about chemicals and how they can harm us.
More than 800 delegates of the United Nations Environment Program met for a week. They included government officials, members of the chemical industry and leaders of civil society.
They agreed on a plan to reduce the risk of death and injury from chemicals. Because the plan is not fully funded, there is some worry that it will not be carried out.
Olga Speranskaya helps lead an international group of more than 700 organizations. Her group works to fight dangerous chemicals. It also helps people who have been contaminated by farm pesticides, mercury and other toxic products.
She says her group is pleased with the plan that was approved by the conference delegates. She says if the risk reduction activities that the delegates called for are put into place, there will be a "reduction of toxic exposure on human health and the environment."
But she is not sure the plan will be put into place by 2020, as the delegates hope. She says the chemicals management program has received funds of only $27 million. She says it needs $100 million to pay for all of the actions the delegates called for.
I'm Jim Tedder.
