On 8 October 2008, Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) organised an expert meeting at the European Parliament to highlight the latest scientific evidence on the connection between childrenʼs health problems and chemicals found in childrenʼs food and products. The meeting was hosted by Dorette Corbey MEP, a member of the Committee on Environment, Public Health, and Food safety, and was attended by MEPs, European Commission representatives and NGOs. The meeting was held as MEPs were preparing to vote on revisions to the Pesticide Directive, the Cosmetics Directive and the Toys Safety Directive.
