Conference on Environment and Health: Indoor Pollution and Multi System Illnesses

Statement

It is necessary to take action

From: http://assembly.coe.int/

Ms Ingrid SCHERRMANN, « Safer World », International Independent Internet Information Network, Germany, said that she had ten demands to present to policy-makers. Firstly, they should keep an open mind to all the knowledge available on the effects of toxic products, with the aim of drawing up appropriate legislation. Political action should be based on the knowledge of experts who were independent of industry. And the political world should understand that the protection of the environment went hand in hand with the protection of human beings. That was one of its key tasks. Political action should be cross-cutting, and the various ministries should work together to ensure that expertise in every field was taken into account. More funds needed to be invested in combating the use of toxic products and developing independent research. High-profile systematic toxic product databases should be set up. Moreover, a threshold-based policy was no longer enough: a risk assessment should be based on an analysis of the products, not just individually, but also in combination, and the law should be adapted to that new requirement. Policy-makers should promote transparency and inform their fellow citizens about known risks to health. They should not play down the health hazards from certain products or suggest that diseases were psychiatric. Political guidelines were needed to prevent any reduction in the level of knowledge of diseases caused by toxic products. Finally, the political world should seek the broadest possible consensus and urge the medical world and society as a whole to shift away from medicine that focused on treatment to one that emphasised prevention, especially primary prevention.
