“Le 3e Plan Santé Au Travail Inscrit Les Produits Chimiques Parmi Les Risques Prioritaires”
25858_une“10 Décembre-La prévention de l’exposition aux produits chimiques est identifiée comme l’un des risques prioritaires du PST 3. Amiante, nanomatériaux et perturbateurs endocriniens sont particulièrement ciblés.
Le Conseil d’orientation des conditions de travail (COCT) a adopté mardi 8 décembre le troisième Plan santé au travail (PST 3), qui constitue la feuille de route du Gouvernement dans ce domaine pour la période 2016-2020. « Ce plan marque un infléchissement majeur en faveur d’une politique de prévention qui anticipe les risques professionnels et garantisse la bonne santé des salariés plutôt que de s’en tenir à une vision exclusivement réparatrice », a déclaré la ministre du Travail.

“Skin Matches Lung Absorption of Phthalates”
skinchemicals_SI_850“Some people assume that the majority of pollutants enter the body through breathing; however, a new report by Science News suggests that equal amounts of some pollutants can enter the body via the skin.
As the body’s biggest organ, skin can serve as a sponge for such chemicals, said John Kissel, environmental engineer at the University of Washington in Seattle in the report.
“If the whole body is exposed, then even low rates of exposure can deliver what turns out to be nontrivial amounts of these chemicals,” he explained.
Phthalates Exposed
Phthalates are an example of harmful chemicals, which are used as solvents and building blocks for plastics. Due to their extensive use, phthalates are found throughout the environment and in people’s bodies. Studies have linked exposure to phthalates with changes in mental activity and reproductive organs for babies, young children and babies in utero. (…)”

“Heavy Metals, Pharmaceuticals and Endangered Species DNA Found in Traditional Chinese Medicines, Research Finds. “
7015188-3x2-340x227

“Some traditional Chinese medicines are laced with pharmaceuticals, heavy metals and even endangered animals, new research has revealed.
« Some traditional Chinese medicines are laced with pharmaceuticals, heavy metals and even endangered animals, new research has revealed.
Traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs) have long been thought by some as a more natural, herbal approach to curing ailments.
But now a study carried out by Curtin University, Murdoch University and the University of Adelaide has found 90 per cent of 26 widely available medicines tested were not fit for human consumption.
Key points:

• Study found 90pc of 26 widely available medicines not fit for human consumption
• Half contained illegal substances, including toxic metals, prescription medication, stimulants
• Some contained arsenic, lead, Viagra, rat poison and DNA of endangered species
• Researcher says ‘honour system’ of TGA listing being exploited
Half contained illegal substances, including toxic metals, prescription medications, stimulants and animal DNA, none of which were listed on the product’s label.

TCMs are a multi-billion-dollar industry and it is estimated 50 per cent of Australians have used alternative therapies at some point.
Researchers employed a new method involving highly sensitive DNA sequencing, toxicology and heavy metal testing to assess the composition of the TCMs.
« If we don’t know what’s in them, it’s very difficult to predict the interactions, … that’s obviously of great concern if they are been given to children, or pregnant women, the potential outcomes there are very serious.

The study does not disclose the brands of medicines checked, but confirmed they were purchased in Adelaide and available for sale in retailers and markets nationally.
Curtin University lead researcher Professor Michael Bunce said the results were shocking.
« Half of them have illegal ingredients in them, we’ve determined from DNA, half of them have got pharmaceuticals added to them that are clearly synthetic in nature and have not come from natural compounds, » he said.
« Another proportion of them have heavy metals beyond the safe ingestion recommendations … 90 per cent of them are really not fit for human consumption. »
Murdoch University biochemist Dr Garth Maker said contamination by undisclosed pharmaceuticals was a health concern.
He said over-the-counter drugs like paracetamol and ibuprofen were found but also steroids, blood thinner warfarin and even sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra.
« We were surprised but at the same time, there definitely seems to be an element of deception in designing these things to have a specific outcome, » he said.
« They may contain ephedrine, which will give a lot of people a buzz, and therefore they feel good and they think ‘this is fantastic medicine, I should keep taking it’. »

“Glyphosate : Résultats De L’Evaluation Européenne”

“4 Décembre- L’Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments (EFSA) a publié les conclusions de son évaluation dans le cadre de la procédure décennale de renouvellement de l’approbation de la substance active glyphosate au niveau Européen.

pesticides_residues_1
Sur la base d’un travail approfondi de l’Agence Allemande (BfR) en qualité d’Etat membre rapporteur, et auquel l’Anses a apporté sa contribution dans le cadre des procédures européennes, les conclusions conduisent à durcir les critères d’évaluation et considèrent la cancérogénicité de la substance comme improbable pour l’homme.

Ces conclusions appellent par ailleurs à approfondir les travaux sur deux points complémentaires, sur lesquels l’Anses a engagé un travail spécifique:

l’un vise à étudier les possibilités de modification de classement du glyphosate dans le cadre du Règlement Reach-CLP, sur la base des données rassemblées tant par le BfR et l’EFSA au niveau européen que par le Centre international de recherche sur le cancer (CIRC) lors de sa récente expertise ;

l’autre a pour but d’évaluer le besoin d’études supplémentaires sur les effets sur la santé humaine des formulants présents dans les préparations commerciales en association avec le glyphosate. Les conclusions de ces travaux seront publiées début 2016.(…)”

Substances extrêmement préoccupantes

“RMOA Of Copper Sulphide”-ECHA

“A risk management option assessment (RMOA) of copper sulphide has concluded that no action is needed on it at this time. Copper sulphide was selected for assessment because REACH registration data said that, as used in the EU, it could contain an impurity with SVH properties. It therefore potentially fulfilled Article 57 criteria where the concentration limit of the impurity exceeded the generic concentration limit relevant for classification as a CMR category 1A/1B.  Also, the substance is registered for uses within the scope of authorisation. These include in:• processing aids;• lubricants, greases and release products; and • the production of brakepads.
However, a subsequent update of the registration data showed that copper sulphide, as used in the EU, does not contain the impurity that caused it to be selected. It will, though, be re-screened at a later date to consider new information.(…)”

« Commission Invites Comments On Restricting 291 Substances »-ECHA

« The European Commission has launched a public consultation on its proposal to restrict 291 substances that are carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction (CMR). The aim is to target hazardous substances in textile articles and clothing for consumers. The Commission seeks views on whether its plan is proportional and enforceable, on potential socio-economic impacts and on the likelihood of the identified CMR substances being present in consumer textile articles. The list of CMR substances (individual substances or groups) covered by this possible restriction would be added as a specific appendix to Annex XVII to REACH and could be regularly updated.

• clearly identify the substance already in the notification (and not only in the safety data sheet);
• ensure faster decision making for the importing country; and
• simplify Article 10 reporting for companies as ePIC will automatically prefill the substance information.(…)”

The Board of Appeal decision examines the scope of the substance evaluation process and the conditions that need to be met in order for the Agency to justify a request for further information. The Board of Appeal dismissed the appeal on the grounds that ECHA had not exceeded the scope of its powers in requesting exposure information from individual registrants and in requesting information on an endpoint that was not the reason for the inclusion of the substance in the community rolling action plan. The Board of Appeal also found that the request for a 28-day repeated dose toxicity study was proportionate as the test is necessary to clarify a potential risk to human health and the environment.
