New research shows incinerator plants could damage fertility of children
Greenpeace called on the Labour Party to ban rubbish incinerators and abandon plans for up to 100 new plants, after medical research published in The Lancet showed that toxic fumes from incinerators could be having alarming effects on the sexual development of children. The study found that teenagers living near incinerators had smaller sexual organs than those in rural areas. The teenagers' bodies contained high levels of toxic chemicals, which are thought to interfere with sexual development and are already linked to cancer, heart disease, allergies and breathing illnesses.
The Labour Party is the only mainstream party not calling for a moratorium on new incinerators. Both Liberal Democrats and Conservatives have made manifesto pledges to halt the building of incinerators until the effects on public health have been established
