When I come into work, I expect my employer to provide me with a safe environment. Man has made chemicals that the body cannot adapt to. As some of you might think, we that are highly sensitive to chemicals are not a small minority; in fact, the number is quite significant. I suggest doing some reading before you write any negative remarks about your right to wear harmful chemicals. My hopes are that someone isn’t affected down the road by what man has made. Imagine your infant dying from lack of oxygen caused from respiratory difficulties stemmed from someone who has the right to marinate themselves in poison.
