Jessica Alba Supports Improved Toxic Substances Control Act

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba is apparently a really green gal from what I’ve read. And she showed that last week in D.C. when she “joined leading public health experts on Capitol Hill… to ask key Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 (S. 847), recently introduced by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).” She was there in her role as a spokesperson for the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Coalition.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Nurses Association, the American Public Health Association, and the American Medical Association have all asked for federal reform on this important topic.
