Dr Sheela Sathyanarayana vs. 403 right wing front group

phthalates, chemicals suspected of impairing male reproductive function, should not apply baby lotions or powders -- except for medical reasons. So concludes a study published in the journal Pediatrics.

note the report says 'suspected'. I've personally spoken to 2 Phd's on phthalate PVC softners, both express concerns about the effects on children which weren't completely understood, but the appearance of high concentrations in child urine was worrisome.

Lead author Sheela Sathyanarayana, an acting assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, advised parents of newborns to buy phthalate-free baby products and "limit [phthalate] exposures to the lowest amount possible."

Some links to Dr. Sheela Sathyanarayana, and relevant articles appear below. She is doing a great service to child care by spotlighting problems with plastics and their health affects on human beings.

she's being attacked by a right wing front group that knows nothing about the underlying science or research... but issues pr news wire op pro, defending political opinions. on phthalates, is to child safety and awareness as the bush administration is to rewriting science, suppressing scientific thought and science denials.

The, claims to be an independent organization, an falsely claims that Dr. Sathyanarayana, is engaging in politics with the publishing of her journal article.
it is tied to a republican 501(c) front group, a PAC, a political action committee, whose funding is of course, unspecified. the press release 'op pro' only mentions science when it defines what phthalates. the rest of the (propaganda)press release is Bush Co right wing whinnying.

see below
contains planted op pro propoganda another staging area for op pro research from 501c
press release progaganda on 'pr news wire' a reputable science journal
note the issues links on the left hand side, all politics and agenda, no research
from sourcewatch,
Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") is a nonprofit, 501(c)(4) corporation based in Alexandria, Virginia. It is a member of the consortium. CFIF was founded in 1998 and describes its mission as being to "to protect and defend individual freedoms and individual rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution." [1]

The CFIF is involved with "strict constructionist" activities regarding judicial and legislative issues. The organization maintains Freedom Line, a radio interview show and We The People, a grassroots organizing effort dedicated to conservative causes.

comment - often front groups have little appreciation for real legal constructionism.

On its website CFIF states that it "relies on private financial support from individuals, associations, foundations and corporations." [3] However, it does not identify which corporations or foundations financially support it.
again mission statement...
blast message to president bush and congress on immigration. again, deep committed scientific research.
more BS on mission statement.

if your really an independent organization, interested in anything other
than getting register as a 501, declare your sources of income, else your a political op pro house, spewing.. attacks for your funder's purposes.

why would oppose child safety and care and not advocate improved and deeper research rather than defend 'status quo' is amusing. why is an organization who claims to be promoting constitutional initiatives, attempting via logical fallacies and political push polling attempting to create FUD.

True patriots care about their families and childrens, apparently believes financial interests are more important than one's family

Ignore the mental invalidates at Go look at their website and initiatives and appreciate that they violate their own charter.
