ABSTRACT
The article deals with a Greenpeace report issued on October 15, 2007 which claims that Apple's iPhone bud cords contain chemicals considered harmful to human reproduction. The phthalates found in the headphone cords are classified in Europe as toxic to reproduction because of their long-recognized ability to interfere with sexual development, according to Greenpeace scientist David Santillo. The environmental group said that while the substances are not prohibited in mobile phones, they have been banned for use in toys sold in Europe and should be removed by Apple. Apple chief executive officer Steve Jobs promised in a May 2007 essay titled "A Greener Apple" that the computer maker would phase out those controversial substances by the end of 2008.
