WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Actress Jennifer Beal lead a stroller brigade of concerned moms on Capitol Hill today.

The group says they worry about the chemicals children are exposed to everyday through household products from cleaners to plastics to furniture.

The mothers are calling for new regulations to identify and restrict the most dangerous chemicals in hopes of preventing cancer and other dangerous diseases.

The chemical safety laws have not been updated since 1976.
