Target: United States Olympics Committee

Petition Background (Preamble):

Scented products can be just as bad for some people as drugs, have some of the same effects; and therefore should be removed from the Olympics and affiliated organizations, as well as training facilities, practice facilities, and other classrooms.

They can cause heart Palpitations, life threatening reactions and more. To view scented products broken down by their toxic ingredients with a list of what these ingredients do to the body see:

.............. Scented products effect heart rate http://www.healthier-you.com/Symptoms-of-MCS.asp/......

Petition:

Whereas, chemically scented products often have the same effect as drugs on the brain, and also increase the heart rate in a large percentage of the population,

Whereas, chemically scented products contain chemicals harmful to human health, putting both the Athlete and spectator at risk,

Whereas, shared air concerns are on the rise due to disabilities such as COPD, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, and Asthma as well as other illnesses.

We the undersigned call on the United States Olympic Committee to ban the use of scented products in the Olympics and affiliated organizations, including training facilities, and classes, making attendance and participation healthy and fair for all.
