Rx for Environmental Ills

October 1975
Time;10/20/1975, Vol. 106 Issue 16, p76
The article discusses the environmental aspects of toxic substances in the U.S. It focuses on the prevention of the development of toxic substances that could possibly harm the environment. It suggests that through screening out of a dangerous chemical compound before using it in any manufacturing processes will prevent the release of toxic substances in the environment. It notes that the government has proposed four toxic-substance bills which are supported by labor leaders and environmentalists in the country.
