Stacy Malkan: Petroleum in Perfume: "Something doesn't smell right, and not just in the Gulf. The horrifying destruction of life caused by the oil spill has everyone's attention; what many people don't realize is that the toxic effects of oil addiction are hitting much closer to home.
Humans have found many uses for oil, but one thing we can't do with it is process it with our bodies to use as food or nourishment. So it's not really a surprise, then, that synthetic chemicals made from oil byproducts don't mesh so well with human health."
