As early as 2001, the EEC was already concerned about chemical products and their impact on the environment and human health. In 2006, REACH (Registration Evaluation Authorization         of Chemicals), a European legislation, appeared to give for each substance classification, risk assessment, toxicity level. The findings were that, if we were to reduce chemically induced diseases by 10% health expenses would go down by 50 billion Euros over thirty years. Since REACH was approved by the European Parliament, consumers have been allowed to demand information on substances. This article makes reference to an in-depth Arthur D. Little study from 2002.
