Jessica Alba - Jessica Alba Backs Safe Chemicals Act

Actress Jessica Alba is pressuring U.S. politicians to enforce stricter regulations for chemicals used in household products.
The Sin City star has thrown her support behind the Safe Chemicals Act, a bill which would require more thorough safety tests on substances used in consumer items.
Alba has become increasingly concerned about toxic chemicals since becoming a mum, and is urging senators meeting at a hearing on Thursday (17Nov11) to pass the legislation.
In a blog for the Huffington Post, Alba writes, "I just gave birth to my second child, and I can tell you that there is no stronger instinct for a mom then (sic) wanting to protect her kids and keep them safe. My children have... made me conscious of every product I buy, from toys to mattresses to cleaning products...
"There is no requirement that the chemicals used in consumer products be tested for safety, even if they're used in products made for children... Would you give your child medicine that hadn't been tested to make sure it was safe? That's why parents are demanding action from Congress now. That's why we need the Safe Chemicals Act."
Alba has two daughters, Honor and Haven, with her husband Cash Warren.
