Last week we told you about The Toxies, the satirical award show for dangerous chemicals that are in everything from our pillows to our food.

Fran Drescher joined in on the educational fun by congratulating all those “bad actor” chemicals up for awards tonight. The actress and cancer survivor said via video, “Without you, Cancer Schmancer would have nothing to do!”

The organizations behind the Toxies are hoping to educate the public through this humorous awards show so that we might step up and demand that companies stop exposing us to so many harmful substances.

The Toxies write on their page, “It’s up to the public to fight back, and sharing the news about these bad actor chemicals through projects like The Toxies can really help. “Innocent until proven guilty” is okay in the criminal justice system, but not okay when it comes to chemicals that can really harm us.”

The Toxies are airing tonight online, so check out the site for more details. Also, while you’re on the website, poke around and read some of the info on there about toxic chemicals and how to avoid them. During our facebook chat with The Toxies the other day, we learned a ton about dangerous chemicals and what we can do to minimize their impact on our health.
