My aim is very different from those who just cover keeping bleach and ammonia apart, labeling products carefully, etc. I want householders to understand the political issues behind product safety regulations and how to do a little research on their products withou t 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 labeling issues and household paints might be of use. If you'd like copies, let me know where you want them sent.
