Toxic chemicals don’t belong in our bodies 

At EWG, we’ve spent decades working to get toxic chemicals out of the food we eat, the water we drink, the clothing we wear and the goods we purchase.  

From arsenic to asbestos, pesticides to phthalates – the list of chemicals that have been found in our homes, in our bodies and in the environment is endless.  

Enough is enough.  

We deserve to know what toxic chemicals are present in our food, water and everyday products. We’re here to make sure you get the information you need to help protect yourself and your loved ones from these chemicals.
