"We are disappointed at the research. It wrongly insinuates safety concerns over cleaning products and ignores enhanced efforts to communicate with consumers over ingredients," Sansoni added.
Another industry representative said the research linking certain chemicals with endocrine disruption and asthma is not conclusive.
"These results show we are exposed to a wide range of chemicals of concern in everyday products, and Nike Metcon Women's Rose Gold
The chemicals, however, were not listed on the product labels, which included major brand name products as well as those marketed as "alternative" products that are often described as fragrance free, more natural and safer than conventional products.
For each of the categories of conventional products, researchers included several brands.
Tests of more than 200 common household products found that the products contain chemicals that research suggests may be linked to asthma and hormone disruption, researchers report.
Two industry groups, however, took issue with the study Nike Zoom Kd conclusions. The research implies that the "mere presence" of the chemicals means the products have safety risks, they said.
The study highlights the need for more complete labeling so that consumers know what they're being exposed to, Dodson said.
the chemicals aren't always listed on the labels," she said. "That can be a basis for modernizing our chemical policy in the United States. It seems these chemicals are not being adequately tested before being put on the shelf."
Disrupting Chemicals Found in Many Household Products
The study, titled "Endocrine Disruptors and Asthma Associated Chemicals in Consumer Products," is published in the March 8 online edition of Environmental Health Perspectives.
One or more of the chemicals turned up in all of the conventional product samples tested, and in 32 of 43 alternative products, according to the report.

Products tested included a wide range of household products, such as soaps, lotions, detergents, cleaners, sunscreens, air fresheners, kitty litter, shaving cream, vinyl shower curtains, pillow protectors, cosmetics and perfumes.
Manufacturers and others are also taking steps to keep consumers informed about what's in household products, Bennett added. That includes the Consumer Product Ingredient Communication Initiative, a voluntary industry program that took effect in 2010. Participating companies are listing product ingredients on the product label, on websites, or making information available via a toll free telephone number.
abnormalities and asthma; bisphenol A (BPA), which is being phased out of many baby bottles and children's toys because of concerns about the effect on fetuses and young children; and parabens, which some research suggests may mimic estrogen in the body and have been associated with breast cancer.
Researchers identified 55 chemicals that studies have shown may have health consequences. Among the chemicals detected were various types of phthalates, which have been linked to reproductive Nike Lebron Xiii Low Black
"They are alarming consumers unnecessarily," said Brian Sansoni, spokesman for the American Cleaning Institute, an industry association for cleaning product manufacturers. Researchers haven't uncovered evidence that typical use of various household products are contributing to health or safety issues, he said.
"It is unfortunate and misleading that the title of this report implies that there is a well defined link between consumer products and endocrine disruption and asthma, when the study of this issue continues and scientific questions remain unresolved," said Steven Bennett, director of scientific affairs for the Consumer Specialty Products Association.
