There is a lot of information on the web, though not in presentation form, much of i t generated by household hazardous waste (HHW) programs, some examples:

& nbsp;

That's part of what I cover in the book Pick Your Poison which will be released the first week in March.  My ai m is very different from those who just cover keeping bleach and ammonia ap art, labeling products carefully, etc.  I want householders to underst and the political issues behind product safety regulations and how to do a little research on their products without being fooled by the hype.

And I'll be doing a number of presentations around the country on these kin ds of subjects.  And some of the data sheets I write on consumer label ing issues and household paints might be of use.  If you'd like copies , let me know where you want them sent.
