Overview

A leading pediatrician answers a question that's on every parent's mind: What's safe for my kids?

There is no doubt that children today are living in an increasingly toxic world. Parents are more worried then ever, and conflicting reports in the media and rumors on the playground can cause even more confusion about which products are perfectly safe and which are harmful, even deadly. Dangerous or Safe? provides desperate parents with concrete answers on what foods, chemicals, and medicines pose real danger to kids.

Combining scientific data, medical expertise, and a parent's intuition, Dr. Cara Natterson-a top pediatrician and mom herself-outlines these threats by first explaining the newest scientific research and then providing a "bottom line" for parents to follow based on the facts and her medical expertise. Making complicated medical and scientific information accessible, Dr. Natterson shows parents how to maximize their children's health and safety.

Dangerous or Safe? explains the hazards of commonly known materials like lead and plastics; debunks myths about perceived threats; and exposes startling new evidence on seemingly benign products-such as cell phones-that may in fact endanger us all. An indispensable resource for parents, this relatable guide gives moms and dads clear instructions on what scary products to avoid, and which so-called poisons are completely safe. Whether it's allergens in the atmosphere or pesticide spray in the yard, Dangerous or Safe? prepares parents for nearly every hazard their child will face.
